Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the shrimp and return the water to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Drain and spread the shrimp on a shallow platter. Refrigerate until completely chilled.

When the shrimp are completely cooled, peel and devein. Put the shrimp in a shallow plastic container and arrange the onions evenly over them. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and whisk to blend.
