Chili Shrimp Recipe

This spicy shrimp appetizer is a hit at every buffet I host. The fiery sauce clings to the succulent shrimp, which look so pretty arranged on a festive platter. Best of all, the shrimp can be easily prepared the day before your event.—Beth Schaefer, Sherwood, Ohio

"Outstanding !! I did tweak a bit, as I discovered the shrimp I bought was already cooked. So, I made the entire sauce, omitted the canola oil (as it was not needed to stir-fry the shrimp), add a few dashes of hot sauce, then let the sauce mellow in the fridge overnight. Next day, mixed it in with the shrimp, let the shrimp marinate in the sauce for a couple of hours, then served it cold. It was a huge hit."
