Camarones En Escabeche
from Charlie on FK

1 pound fresh shrimp -- peeled and deveined
1/3 cup olive oil
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 cloves garlic -- smashed
1 tablespoon paprika
1 cup white vinegar
2 small onions -- thinly sliced
4 jalapeno chile peppers -- sliced in disks
Sea salt -- to taste
Freshly ground black pepper -- to taste
1 head Romaine lettuce leaves
8 radishes -- sliced
16 green olives -- sliced

Saute the shrimp, a few at a time, in a little of the olive oil until lightly
brown, adding more oil as needed. Place in a covered dish or jar.

In a saucepan, combine the remaining oil with the bay leaf, cumin, nutmeg, garlic, paprika, vinegar, onions, chiles, salt, and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil slowly and simmer until the onions are tender, about 5 minutes.

Pour the vinegar mixture over the shrimp. Chill overnight.

Serve on Romaine leaves, garnished with radishes and green olives.
