Tomato Hors d’oeuvres Fast!

OK….so the picture doesn’t match what I’m about to explain, but I think you’ll be happy with the results in spite of the inequities between picture and description. BUT, what I’m explaining IS actually what’s in the picture….just a little different. Now that I’ve totally confused the hell out of you let me clarify the entire situation.

Let’s start with a couple of “Round Platters”. Slice tomatoes and arrange them on the platters so they don’t touch. Then we can take a shrimp (you chose the size) and place it on one of the tomato slices. THEN we place a “dollop” of our excellent sauce on each one. The recipe for the topping is listed below and can be adjusted according to your taste.

Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 rib celery from the heart, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • Few dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 rounded tablespoons prepared horseradish

This Hors d’oeuvres has several distinct advantages. Firstly it makes an impressive appearance without seeming too ostentatious. Secondly, it makes the shrimp go a long way without having a food cop necessary for those individuals who normally might help themselves to a larger than socially acceptable share of the refreshments. Now I’m not implying that you have any friends that are less than true Emily Post devotees, but I know some of my friends break down when tempted with shrimp without hand cuffs!
