Recipe by Andi of Longmeadow

Easy shrimp appetizer that isn't a whole lot of fuss. The use of Old Bay Seasoning is highly recommended, but any seafood seasoning would do in a pinch. Great on a Ritz.

Yummy little appy! I used precooked peel- and- eat shrimp that I marinated in homemade Italian Dressing overnight. I also served them in a bowl with the crackers surrounding it. I got lots of compliments from my friends. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7.
