To make cocktail sauce, mix all the ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, fill a pot with water and squirt some lemon juice in there. Add onion, black peppercorn, salt, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil over high heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Add shrimp and cook for another 3 minutes. Arrange shrimp on a plate and serve with cocktail sauce on the side.
