Easy Shrimp Appetizer
This is an Easy Shrimp Appetizer. My friend Ruth brought this to our Daughters of the American Revolution December meeting and I fell in love with her Shrimp Platter. When they say presentation is everything, they aren’t wrong.
To make this gorgeous platter all you need is fresh large cocktail shrimp, a lemon cut up into wedges, and fresh rosemary. She took the shrimp and arranged them on a festive Christmas platter and then cup the lemon into wedges and used the rosemary to garnish. It was that simple but turned out to become a beautiful edible display.
She served cocktail sauce on the side too! For this simply yet elevated presentation it really comes down to the presentation. You could easily pick up a shrimp cocktail platter and turn it into this easy shrimp appetizer or just pick up some cocktail shrimp.
You can make your own cocktail sauce by combining 1 cup ketchup, 1 lemon, zest finely and juiced, 4 teaspoons prepared horseradish, to taste, 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce and a drop of hot sauce, again to taste.
