Shrimp en Escabeche Recipe at
Sprinkle shrimp with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in heavy large skillet over high heat. Saute shrimp, a few at a time, just until lightly brown, about 1 minute per side. Using slotted spoon, transfer shrimp to bowl.

Add remaining oil and all remaining ingredients except the garnishes to the same skillet. Bring to a boil. Simmer gently until onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Pour mixture over shrimp. Cover and chill overnight. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Arrange lettuce leaves on platter; spoon shrimp into leaves. Garnish with radishes and green olives, and serve. Alternately, toss mixed baby greens with enough marinade to coat. Season greens to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon greens and shrimp onto small plates. Garnish with radishes and olives and serve.
