  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil; steam or boil shrimp until they turn pink, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain shrimp and immediately run under cold water to stop cooking.
  2. Chop shrimp into bite-size pieces; place in a medium bowl. Add onion, celery and parsley; toss well.
  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and sugar; pour over shrimp mixture and toss to combine. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.
