Pour the water into a large saucepan with all the seasoning and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes and add the shrimp. Turn off the heat and allow the shrimp to cool in the liquid. Drain and peel and devein the shrimp.

Place the shrimp in a stainless steel bowl and toss with the vinegar, olive oil, onion, celery, lemon, garlic and spices. Toss to evenly distribute and marinate overnight.

To make the bloody mary sauce, place all the ingredients for the sauce in a blender jar and blend until smooth. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary.

To serve, add a ladle of the sauce to a shallow bowl, place 5 shrimp in the center with some of the red onion and celery.
