I love this appetizer!

It tastes good
looks impressive
is ridiculously easy

is not as fattening as your average scampi.

My favorite thing about this appetizer?

It means no water-logged grocery store shrimp at the party-yippee!

Serve the shrimp over crushed ice on a platter along with slivered lemon slices and cocktail sauce or if you are serving it at home you can serve it warm.
{Look for cocktail sauce with no high fructose corn syrup please!}

Going to a holiday party?
Bring this…Your friends will thank ya!

Holiday Cheers!


Here’s What You Need: Small party*
1 lb of large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tail on*
2 TBS of extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp of butter
1/2 tsp of sea salt
1/4 tsp of black pepper
1/2 tsp of Italian Seasoning (I like Penzey’s)
1 TBS of white wine
3 cloves of garlic, diced roughly

Here’s What You Do:
Preheat the oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the shrimp out. Add seasoning and the remaining ingredients and toss well to coat. Bake for 10-12 minutes or  until golden but not overcooked.

If you are going to a larger party get 2lbs of shrimp and double the rest of the ingredients. I suggest buying the shrimp that is peeled and deveined with the tail on so it is a quicker recipe!

Kid Tip:
Dipping sauce! Kids love anything that includes using their fingers for dipping 😉
