Bass Ale Shrimp

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This is a great meal for two, or it can be an appetizer for about 8 people. It's really great for parties because it's made ahead of time and then needs to chill. I found this in a Junior League cookbook. Prep time includes the 2 hour chill time.

Very nice. Good light meal, can see how it would work well as an appeteaser too. Suggest garnishing the finished lettuce-lined plate with some tomato wedges, too. Nice job!
