  • 2 Tbsp. sea salt
  • 4 tsp. GC Napa Valley Fish Rub Proprietary Blend
  • 1 lb. raw, shell-on, extra-large shrimp 26/30 or jumbo 21/25

TO PREPARE

  1. Blanch Shrimp (semi-cooks the shrimp): Heat 9 cups water per lb. of shrimp in a medium pot over high heat with the next three ingredients. Bring to a rolling boil. In the meantime, prepare ice bath: 4 cups cold water + 2 cups ice cubes.
  2. To the boiling water, add raw shrimp, give a slight stir, cook 2 minutes (do not overcook; shrimp will finish ‘cooking’ in the acidic pickling marinade.) Drain shrimp, put in ice bath. When cool, peel and devein.
  3. Citrus Pickling Marinade: Mix the ingredients in a stainless-steel or glass bowl. Add shrimp, stir to coat, refrigerate 2 hours minimum, stirring occasionally.
