Step 1

In a stock pot, cook shrimp in lightly salted boiling water to cover for 1 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are opaque.

Step 2

Drain and place shrmip in a resealable plastic bag set in a deep bowl.

Step 3

Add lemon slices, onion rings, olives, and tomato; toss to mix well.

Step 4

In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, garlic, mustard, salt, and red pepper.

Step 5

Pour over shrimp mixture and close the bag. Turn bag gently to coat contents.

Step 6

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

Step 7

(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.)

Step 8

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

Step 9

Enjoy!

Step 10

Refrigerate leftovers, (but not in the marinade.).
