1 lb uncooked medium shrimp (40-50)، peeled and deveined
Salt to taste
per serving
1 tbsp finely chopped red onion
½ lime juiced (some people use a whole lime per serving)
1 tbsp garlic water (see notes below)
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp mayonnaise
Saltine crackers for serving (optional)

Bring water to a boil in a medium pot over high heat. Add salt to taste and then add the raw shrimp. Reduce heat to medium and let shrimp cook until the water comes to a boil again (about three minutes). Drain the shrimp and then transfer to a bowl of iced water to stop the cooking process. Drain again and let it cool completely in the fridge.
To serve، fill an 8 oz. cup or glass with cooked shrimp، add 1 tbsp of chopped red onion، squeeze the lime on top، add 1 tbsp garlic water، 2 tbsp ketchup and 1 tbsp mayonnaise. Stir really well and serve with saltine crackers on the side.
To make the garlic water، fill a small airtight bottle or container with water، place 2-3 garlic cloves inside، cover it and keep it in the fridge overnight.
