When shopping for shrimp, look for those that are firm and not slippery. Beware of shrimp that are bright pink or red. They have a “cooked” appearance due to not being properly iced.
Cook shrimp in salted or seasoned water. Peel and devein.
Mix shrimp with lemon juice. Add celery, eggs, mayonnaise, Tabasco and pepper. Mix well. Chill thoroughly. Serve on lettuce leaves. Garnish with tomato wedges. Serves 3 to 4.
