Step 1

In a medium glass or plastic bowl, whisk together oil, garlic, dry mustard, salt, lemon juice, vinegar, bay leaf, and cayenne. 

Stir in lemon slices, onion slices, olives, pimiento, and parsley; mix well.  Add shrimp to bowl and toss gently to coat shrimp. 

Cover bowl with plastic wrap or lid and refrigerate for 1 hour, but no more than 4 hours, or the flavors will become overpowering.  Toss again before serving and transfer to a pretty glass serving bowl.  Serve with frilly toothpicks.  Serves 8-10
