5 medium red potatoes
6 cups of water

1 tablespoon salt
1 pound medium uncooked shrimp
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 jar diced pimientos (drained)

Additional salt to taste

Place the potatoes in a large saucepan; add the water, seafood seasoning and salt. Bring to a boil; Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25 minutes.

Add the shrimp; cover and cook for 8 minutes or until shrimp turn pink and potatoes are tender. Drain. Peel potatoes (or not. I don't peel mine) and dice potatoes. Peel and devein shrimp; cut into pieces.

In a large bowl,combine the potatoes, shrimp, onions and pimientos. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Beat until creamy. Add to potato mixture; gently toss to coat. Season with additional salt if needed. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

Note: I usually double the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar. Taste after beating and add additional as needed.
