Spontaneous Vacation Recipe: Gwen's Cilantro Shrimp Marinade

Some of the best recipes are the ones you throw together out of whatever ingredients happen to be in your kitchen that seem like they'd be delicious in combination. I just got back from a long weekend with my gentleman friend during which I whipped up the following I-Don't-Know-What-to-Call-It-But-It's-Awesome recipe:

1/2 lb. bay shrimp, rinsed
Bunch of fresh cilantro, cleaned & chopped rough
Juice of 1 lemon
2-3 green onions, chopped
About a 1/2 cup each of olive oil & white vinegar
Several generous squirts of Huy Fong Sriracha red rooster sauce

Mix all ingredients together in a non-reactive bowl (glass or ceramic). Cover. Chill for at least 2 hours. Spoon out onto tortilla chips and nom nom nom.
