Peel shrimp & devein if necessary; bring enough sliced lemon & enough water to cover shrimp to a boil. Add shrimp and cook for 3 - 5 minutes. Drain and rinse shrimp with very cold water to stop them from cooking. Put shrimp in a bowl (I use a Tupperware type bowl with a lid and gently shake it with the lid on to stir). Combine all other ingredients in a separate bowl; beat with a whisk; pour over shrimp & toss well. Cover and chill shrimp for at least 8 hours. Stir shrimp a couple of time while it's chilling. One hour before serving, drain the shrimp WELL in a colander and serve in a bowl. Enjoy!
