A very easy to make appetizer that is one of my favourites. Can't remember where I got this recipe but I get asked to make it a lot!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Layer shrimp, onion, lemon slices and olives in bowl.
  2. Combine oil, vinegar, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, bay leaf, dry mustard, basil, salt and pepper in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Cover; shake to blend.

Just about to add the same recipe that caught my eye in Pingry Cooks but my recipe calls for 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper where you have basil. It also says to mix everything and put over the cooked shrimp and marinate for 2 hours up to overnight. Just thought I'd post the variation here. Thanks for posting.
