Cricket’s Marinated Shrimp

Bailey Farms hot sauces are all natural and of the highest quality. Unlike other sauces that are mostly pepper-vinegar, they are a blend of chiles and fresh vegetables that are cooked down to perfection and deliver the perfect balance of heat and flavor.

1 lb cleaned undercooked shrimp
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 tsp salt or to taste
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp whole black pepper
1 bay leaf
Dash of Bailey Farms Hot Sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup salad oil


Combine all ingredients and marinate for at least 24 hours. Turn at least twice. This will keep for 2 days in the refrigerator if tightly covered. (For 3 lbs of shrimp, use 1 1/2 times the amount of marinade. For 9 lbs, use 4 times the amount.) Each pound serves 3-4.
