So pretty, so easy. Cooked shrimp marinate in ginger dressing, then join crispy snow peas for a quick appetizer.
lb cooked deveined peeled large shrimp (about 35)
cup (8 oz) Asian ginger dressing
oz fresh snow pea pods (about 35)
Toothpicks or appetizer picks
In medium bowl, place shrimp. Pour dressing evenly over shrimp; stir to coat. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour. Meanwhile, remove stem and strings from pea pods. To partially cook pea pods, place in boiling water about 1 minute or until pea pods turn bright green. Drain; rinse with cold water and dry with paper towels.
Drain dressing from shrimp. Wrap 1 pea pod around each shrimp; secure with toothpick. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
Blanching turns the pea pods bright green color and makes them pliable to wrap around the shrimp.
Changing the flavor of this appetizer is as simple as switching the salad dressing. Experiment to find your favorite.
