Pickled Shrimp

Thanks for voting! You already voted!
"Pickled" is something of a misnomer, the Shrimp only have a pickled flavor, but they will keep in the fridge for at least a week, and they taste very, very good. Don't worry about all those red pepper flakes; these are spicy, but aren't nearly as hot as they sound.
