Shrimp cocktail just screams childhood to me...I remember my parents always went out to Las Vegas and they would come home and show me how it was served in the big city of lights! One of my favorite presentations is in a mint julep cup...of course, after you finish your mint julep first!
1 pound shrimp in the shell
2 tablespoons black peppercorns
4 bay leaves
2 limes halved and juiced
