Mix together vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.  Add 1/3 cup of the oil, broth and shallots. Mix vigorously, then set dressing aside.

Season shrimp with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil until very hot but not smoking. Add shrimp and cook, stirring constantly, until cooked through and opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a bowl and toss with half of the reserved dressing.
