Marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 but not more than 6, turning bag once or twice.

(Important! Do not leave shrimp longer than 6 hours in the marinade or the shrimp will become rubbery as the acids in the marinade continue to "cook" the shrimp.)

Drain and serve in a clear glass bowl to show off the pretty colors.
