Easy Shrimp Cocktail

Makes 8 Servings

2/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoon grated lemon rind
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 1/2 lb peeled, large cooked shrimp

Whisk together olive oil, vinegar, lemon rind, salt, pepper and hot sauce in a large bowl. Place cooked shrimp and marinade in a large ziploc bag. Seal and chill 8-24 hours, turning bag occasionally. Serve with cocktail sauce.

This shrimp cocktail is easy and delicious, although we like ours a little less "lemon-y" and a little more spicy! We usually up the hot sauce to a tablespoon or two and omit most of the lemon rind. This will be part of the "Favorite Things" meal for my husband tomorrow for Father's Day, he is going to love it!
