    A Day Ahead

    Leaving the shrimp with the shell on but removing the vein, marinate the shrimp in white wine making sure there is enough wine to cover the shrimp well. To the wine add about 1/3 cup of whole peppercorns and 6 bay leaves. It is best to marinate the day ahead but if you are short on time marinate for a minimum of 4 hrs.

    Cook shrimp in the wine with the peppercorns, & bay leaves. Once shrimp begins to turn pink remove from wine mixture and set aside to cool. Once shrimp is cool remove the shell and butterfly the shrimp. Toss shrimp and sweet mini peppers with spicy vinaigrette and feta cheese and serve over a bed of lettuce.
