Dijon-Marinated Cocktail Shrimp

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + marinating


3-1/2 dozen

I like to prepare the shrimp for this recipe a day ahead and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Then all you have to do is serve the dish when you're ready! —Sarah Conaway, Lynchburg, Virginia
