Shrimp Appetizers (Easy)

Shrimp Appetizers (Easy) created by Chef floWer

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.

    What a lovely appetizer. I used the sesame ginger dressing as suggested by others. I did serve it À_la_carte so as not to soak the crackers before eating. We enjoyed the flavors. Thanks for posting. :)

    Thank you Andi of L and Chef floWer. Andi this is super yummy. Chef FloWer I loved the dressing you suggested as well. These little babies were great. My guests weren't as enthused so next time I may bring down the Old bay for them. My husband liked the way you got more of the dressing one bite and later on a burst of a different flavor. The dill fresh is great. Do not assemble early. The cracker disintegrates from the dressing. Right before is best. I also drizzled more marinade over them. Delicious. Thanks! ChefDLH
