I only just realized that Summer is about to end and I haven’t really had a chance to connect with friends and have them over for some fun in the sun aka my backyard. I love to entertain however find less and less time to do this given I spend one half of my weekend taping for my YouTube channel. It occurred to me that I do have some really quick recipes I always include when I entertain to balance out the easy with the harder recipes. I’m going to knock out three recipes in record time and have time to laze around the backyard with my family and friends.
Here is the recipe for a Shrimp ring that runs circles around the kind you get at a grocery store. You can also view my Parmesan Bruschetta and my Rocky Road Pillows for those with a sweet tooth!
I love the thought of dipping Shrimp in a cocktail sauce as an appetizer but the bland frozen shrimp with the insipid cocktail sauce tempts the eyes, but not the tastebuds. This version is super delicious and so easy to make!
