As soon as the shrimp reaches a boil remove from the heat, strain the water, and plunge the shrimp into the ice water to stop the cooking. Allow the shrimp to chill for about 10 minutes.

After shrimp are cooled strain the water and toss the shrimp with the pesto, season with salt and pepper, to taste.

1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts

1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon chopped garlic

Salt and freshly ground black pepper
