Helpful Tips:

We live right on the ocean and have friends that shrimp in season, and are very generous with their catch. So I have to come up with new ideas to serve the shrimp. I recently brought these to a pig roast, and the host told me I could not come again, because these appetizers were upstaging his pig.
