Recipe Preparation

  1. With raw shrimp, bring 2 quarts (2 liters) of water to a rolling boil in a large pot.   Have a large bowl of ice-cold water ready to cool the shrimp. For  cooked shrimp skip to step 5.
  2. Place the shrimp in the boiling water and cook about 2 minutes so the shrimp are pink and firm.

  4. Chop shrimp in coarse chunks and set them aside.
  5. Mix the celery, shallot, pickles, mayonnaise, chopped boiled-eggs, sour cream, lemon juice, and dill in a bowl.  Add the shrimp and stir.  If you wish, add Tabasco,  and season with salt and pepper to taste.
