A Delicious Dinner

Pickled Shrimp

January 3, 2013

This party pleaser was perfect for this past week’s multi-family potluck supper. We served it in a large, glass cookie jar accompanied by long, wooden skewers and holiday napkins. It’s delicious as an appetizer, as well as topped on greens for lunch or dinner. It needs at least 24 hours marinating time, so try it […]
