Delicate Shrimp appetizer

Appetizer because it’s light and somewhat refreshing, yet we have enjoyed this as a meal, as a mid day or late night snack.

As for seafood, Shrimps is one of my soft spots, we eat them so many ways and this is a very simple and tasty way of making them relatively fast.

Don't miss out on these season Shrimps, Butter Lettuce leaves, and some cheese great at any time.
