Thawing frozen cooked shrimp

First take the frozen cooked, shelled and deveined shrimp and place them in a colander. Put the colander under cold running water until the shrimp thaw. This takes about 10 minutes.

In the meantime, put the lemon, onion, black olives, pimientos, lemon juice, white wine vinegar, vegetable oil, salt, pepper, cayenne, dry mustard and a bay leave into a large bowl. I used the OXO 5 quart mixing bowl with the rubber bottom and grip.
