The snow has fallen, Christmas music is playing in shops, and community tree lightings are taking place all over Greater Vancouver. That means Christmas parties are just around the corner! Give the Costco shrimp platter a break and really impress your friends by making your own shrimp cocktails! This recipe from Canadian Living magazine looks like it packs a lot of flavour.
Poached shrimp with tangy cocktail sauce is a classic, tasty start. Offer little dishes of the sauce on each plate then garnish with curly strips of lemon rind if you like. [see recipe]
