Last week I made these with a friend of mine for a dinner party. These shrimp are very lite and fresh which is definitely needed this weekend with the horrible summer heat wave sweeping the nation.

Zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon wine or sherry vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 anchovy fillets, coarsely chopped
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 bay leaf, crumbled
1 pounds large shrimp (leave tails on)
2 to 3 teaspoons salt (for boiling water)

Remove the shells from the shrimp and cook in boiling salted water. This should take about 1 ½ minutes until they turn pink. Combine all the other Ingredients in a bowl and toss cooked shrimp in marinade. Place in refrigerator and let marinade for at least three hours. Remove shrimp from Marinade and ready to serve.
