Poached Shrimp

1. Pour the water and wine into a saucepan over medium high heat. Add the lemon, onion, garlic, bay leaf and salt. Bring the works to a full simmer and continue cooking for a few minutes so the flavours can build. Add the shrimp, stir, cover with a tight-fitting lid, turn off the heat and rest for 10 minutes. Remove the shrimp and set aside to cool further.
