Shrimp Cocktail Shots. Simple but stunning shots of flavor.
This may just be the most dramatic looking shrimp cocktail ever. And yet, so easy!
Buy medium sized shrimp, and make your presentation so that each guest only eats ONE shrimp. Whether you’re making this for a special birthday dinner, or as a super bowl recipe, or the in-laws are coming over, or any other festive event – I promise your guests will think you are the next Martha Stewart – they are incredibly easy and they look so pretty on a party platter!
I saw something similar served once at a fancy wedding reception, and wanted to try my own version. The trick is to set the shrimp on top of a little shot glass and fill the glass with a little drink to “chase” the shrimp. I like V-8 juice mixed with a little cocktail sauce. I used some votive candle holders that I had left over from my daughters’ weddings a few years ago, and they worked perfectly. The bonus: this is one of those dishes that will make you seem like a fabulous chef who has slaved for hours, but in reality this is one of the easiest appetizers I have ever made! Only six ingredients and about 20 minutes to make!
