Pickled Shrimp with Mississippi Comeback Sauce

Pickled Shrimp with Mississippi Comeback Sauce

Author note: I have found myself enjoying the pickled shrimp with not only Mississippi Comeback Sauce, but also with ruffled potato chips. The three seem to work very well together. The shrimp tends to toughen after a few days, so consume within 48 hours.

2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 cup white distilled vinegar

2 cups water

1/2 teaspoon celery seed

1/2 teaspoon mustard seed

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakesĀ  (or more to taste)

1 tablespoon kosher salt

2 fresh bay leaves, torn in half

2 garlic cloves, rough chopped

1/2 cup onion, rough chopped

Mississippi Comeback Sauce, for serving (recipe below)

ruffled potato chips, for serving

  1. Bring a large pan of water to boil. Add the shrimp and cook for 2 minutes. Quickly drain the shrimp from the water and submerge in an ice bath. Let chill for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile combine the vinegar, water, celery seed, mustard seed, red pepper flakes, salt, mustard seed, bay leaf, garlic and onion in a large bowl. Stir well.
  3. Add the cooked shrimp. Stir to combine. Place in the fridge and let sit for at least six hours. Serve by itself or with Mississippi Comeback Sauce (recipe below).
