Reviews for Herbed Shrimp Appetizer
"I have made this delicious and refreshing appetizer many times. I cut down on the olive oil (only use about 1/3 cup). I love to serve this for a brunch menu item. It disappears so fast...3 shrimp per person is an under estimate. People piled it high on their plates. Consider 6-8 per person for serious seafood lovers."
