    Trinkets's Note:

    This shrimp appetizer is fantastic! Cold and refreshing with the zingy flavors of lime, cilantro and a kick of jalapeno make this the perfect hot weather hors d'oeurve. The amount of peppers you add are up to you but this recipe was made with kids in mind (Southern kids who like a little spice in their food!). Try this with Margaritas or ice cold beer (lemonade for the kids)! Most of the cooking time is chilling time in the fridge. Next time we'll try grilling the shrimp instead of boiling for another flavor dimension.

      Absolutely amazing. THis would also be great tossed with some Pasta for a cold dish.
