- In a 4-quart saucepan, combine the water, 2 tablespoons salt, the cayenne and white vinegar, and bring to a boil. Add the shrimp, return to a boil, and turn off the heat. Let sit 5 minutes and then drain. When cool enough to handle, shell the shrimp.
- In a bowl, blend together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, wine vinegar and hot sauce. Stir in the shrimp, chopped eggs and celery. Season with salt to taste. Serve on lettuce leaves. Garnish with avocado, eggs and tomatoes if desired.
