Step 1: prepare the shrimp.

Then put the washed shrimp in a pot of boiling water, add salt, black pepper and peppercorns and bay leaf to taste. Water should be slightly salted. Cook shrimp for 3 to 4 minutes, then remove them from the pan with a slotted spoon and transfer to a deep plate. Allow to cool and clean them with clean hands from the shell and heads.

Step 2: prepare the vegetables.

Cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions and lettuce peeled from seeds and stalk, rinse under running water from dust, sand and various dirt.

Cut red sweet onion into small cubes 0.5 to 0.5 millimeters. Cut the tomatoes in half, and remove the seeds from them with a tablespoon. Then cut the remaining pulp into small pieces of arbitrary size. Chop the lettuce leaves in small strips or tear your hands directly into a deep bowl in small pieces.
