One small red pepper, diced small
Half a red onion, diced small, rinsed and dried
Place shrimp in a pot of boiling water that has been seasoned with 2 t salt, 1 t red pepper flakes, 3-4 bay leaves, and the juice of one lemon. Cook until shrimp are just firm to the touch. Drain and cool. Remove peels and dice.

1/2 t celery seed
1/4 t salt
1/2 t pepper
Zest of one lemon
Zest of one lime
Zest of half an orange
Pinch of fresh parsley, cilantro and dill (be generous!)
Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until smooth. Chill.
Combine shrimp, fennel, celery, red pepper and red onion in a bowl. Add dressing until desired consistency is achieved. (You may not use all the dressing.) Adjust seasoning with salt and cracked pepper. Mound shrimp salad on avocado halves, crostini or lettuce.
