Shrimp cocktail is a wonderful appetizer to break out for your Easter brunch, but not everyone likes the taste of cold, cooked shrimp. According to Food Network, you can give the dish a bit of a twist this year by roasting the shrimp in the oven before you serve it to your guests.
Start by taking two pounds of jumbo shrimp and placing it on a baking sheet. After drizzling it with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, place it in a 400 degree oven and let it roast for eight to 10 minutes or until pink. This will give the shrimp a fresh taste and will make the appetizer a bit more appealing.
Cocktail sauce is the traditional dip of choice for shrimp, so instead of splurging on pre-made sauce in the store, make it yourself! All you need to do is combine a bit of prepared horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup and Tabasco sauce in a bowl and mix them up. Taste the sauce frequently to find the right combination of spice and flavor that your guests can handle.
This dish can be thrown together very easily, and you can use your new Gerhards appliances to get the job done. Easter is a great time to show off your culinary abilities, so wow your guests with this unique twist on a classic dish.
