So, let’s say you’re invited to a holiday get together at the very last minute, and your hostess, who is one of those really maddeningly Martha-Stewart kind of people, says – casual as can be – “Oh, just bring some finger foods.”
So, you need some appetizers that are not just delicious but pretty on a platter, and you need them STAT.
Never fear, foodie fans.
This idea was inspired by Martha herself in her latest issue of Martha Stewart Living. She made Shrimp Mango Bites by wrapping a thin piece of mango around a grilled shrimp and tied it up with a softened green onion. Really,Â Â green onions are just perfect for bow-making, aren’t they? And, since I love making green and red food this time of year, I switched up the mango and usedÂ roasted red bell strips with the green onion bow.
You could make these even easier by just making the spicy shrimp and then tying it with a softened green onion (skipping the bell pepper strip).
These are seriously the cutest little holiday bites I have seen -Â they just scream out “Happy Holidays!” They look adorable on a party platter, and the flavors are perfect together – spicy shrimp, sweet bell pepper and the green onion tang.
A perfect holiday bite!
