“What can we bring?”
Welcome words, these, for dinners and parties. I always – always – accept when someone offers to bring something and always offer when we’ve been invited out.
These shrimp bites were a huge hit when our friends the Hancocks came for dinner a few weeks back. Since then, I’ve made them twice, using guacamole and cooked shrimp from the grocery store. (See? I don’t eschew ALL convenience foods.) Both times, the Easy Shrimp Bites were gobbled up in minutes, with people vying for the last one on the plate!
EASY SHRIMP BITES with
GUACAMOLE & SALSA
Time to table: 10 minutes
Makes 1 to many
PER SHRIMP BITE
- 1 sturdy cracker, such as Melba or Ritz
- 1 squirt guacamole
- 1 cooked shrimp, shell and tail removed
- 1 dab salsa
- 1 sprinkle grated cheese
Spread crackers on a work surface in an assembly line. Squirt each one with a swirl of guacamole, then gently press a shrimp onto the guacamole. Top with a little salsa and arrange the crackers on a serving plate. (If you like, put a cloth of some sort underneath, otherwise they’ll slide around.) Sprinkle with cheese.
Refrigerate until ready to serve but even so, best served within an hour or so, otherwise the crackers get a little soggy.
