Bring water to a boil, add shrimp. Cook 3 to 5 minutes. Drain well and rinse with cold water. Peel and devein shrimp. To make grapefruit shells, use 1 grapefruit for each bowl. Cut a thin slice from stem end of each grapefruit to level the base. Score rind with sharp knife to make a shell with 4 petals, starting about 2 inches from top of grapefruit and ending within 2 inches of base. Then cut just through the rind along scoring. Carefully pull each petal from fruit, using a grapefruit knife to separate pulp from rind. Remove grapefruit pulp intact using thumb to dislodge pulp; set shell half of grapefruit shells with lettuce; spoon grapefruit into shell. Combine eggs, mayonnaise, catsup, pickle relish and pepper; spoon over grapefruit. Top with shrimp. Yield 4 servings.
