    Manami's Note:

    A light first course like shrimp cocktail is an ideal way to kick off a superhearty Thanksgiving meal. Here, Grace Parisi, from Food & Wine Magazine, revamps the classic shrimp-cocktail recipe by including scallops and stone-crab claws, then she tweaks the cocktail sauce by replacing the ketchup with bottled chile sauce and seasoning it with hot pimenton de la Vera and prepared horseradish. This calls for 4 hours chilling time, a fast & healthy recipe and can be made ahead of time. Recipe by Grace Parisi. From: Ultimate Thanksgiving Planner: Time-Saving Tips. November 2008, *If you can't get cracked stone-crab claws, you will need to crack them yourself!! Working with one crab claw at a time, wrap it in a kitchen towel. Working carefully, lightly crack the crab claw with the back of a knife or a mallet to expose as much of the meat as possible(the sweetest part)leaving the pincers attached.
