Marinated shrimp is an easy, make-ahead appetizer that’s sure to impress!
This marinated shrimp appetizer is an old family favorite that I simply adore. I made this for my first ever dinner party, back when I lived with some girls in Washington, D.C. My then-boyfriend, now-husband and I had invited a small group of friends over to my house for New Years Eve and I had heavy appetizers planned for everyone. Including this marinated shrimp. I must say, I felt very fancy and very accomplished.
What this also should tell you, however, is that it’s a super easy dish. (Bonus: It’s make-ahead as well! Perfect party material.) These were in my very early days of cooking when I relied on recipes that featured very few ingredients and the simplest of techniques. I was still getting to know my way around a grocery store, to be honest. I used to call my mom and say, “This recipe calls for vinegar. There are about 8 different kinds of vinegars on the shelf. Which one do I use?” Or, “What’s dry mustard? Oh, a spice? In the spice aisle?” I’ve come a long way, baby.
Whether you’re just starting out in the kitchen or you’re on old pro, this family recipe of mine will surely be a hit. Head over to Cook.Craft.Love. where I shared this shrimp appetizer as a guest post and be sure to check out some of Meaghan’s deliciousness and crafty fun while you’re there!
