1 pound of large shrimp (15-20 count) ( will cost about $16 a pound.)
 
 Makes: 4 servings.
 
 Bring a large pot of water to the boil and boil shrimp for 3-5 minutes
 until they are pink and rise to the top.  Drain in colander until
 cool (20 - 30 minutes).  This will finish any cooking but ensure that 
 they remain tender not rubbery.
 
 Now you can peel them and remove the vein by slicing down the outside
 of the back and running them under cold water, or if you don't care
 about the vein, just peel them.  Place in the frig for several hours
 (or overnight wrapped in plastic).  The vein/intestine doesn't hurt
 anyone, but some people have a phobia about it.
 
 Place cocktail sauce in a bowl in middle of a platter.  Arrange shrimp
 around bowl of sauce.  e-mail me if you want individual serving ideas.
