Zesty Marinated Shrimp makes a great appetizer or first course and is wonderful on top of a salad with the sauce as a vinaigrette.



  • 1 1/22 lbs large shrimp, peeled, and deveined
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup tarragon vinegar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoons red pepper flakes, or more or less to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 to taste fresh ground pepper, to taste


  1. Cook shrimp in boiling salted water until pink. Usually 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl or zip top bag.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over warm shrimp. Toss well so every shrimp is coated.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 to 10 hours (overnight is best). Drain excess sauce from shrimp before serving.
