Cocktail Sauce - Salsa Rosa(see recipe ↪)
Prepare the salsa rosa cocktail sauce as described in Cocktail sauce - Salsa rosa ↪. Follow the link for the recipe.
Prepare a large bowl of ice water.
In a pot bring to boil water, kosher salt and lemon juice. Rinse the shrimps and boil them for 2 minutes from when the water returns to boil. The shrimp should be bright pink.
Paying attention to do not damage the shrimps, I suggest to use tongs, remove the shrimps from the pot and put them in the iced water and let them cool down for 2 minutes.
Peel the shrimp (leaving the tail-on.) Drain and serve with the cocktail sauce.
As serving suggestion put some sauce in a martini glass and arrange the shrimps around the border of the glass.
