“Caramelized onion and golden raisins add sweet balance to the shrimp. It can be assembled in no time by making the onion spread ahead. Remove the shrimp for a vegetarian option and replace with crumbled feta. I've allowed 30 minutes resting time for the raisins and if the onions aren't made ahead of time another 30 minutes cooling time for the onions once cooked.We enjoyed them for Christmas Eve before the BIG meal.;)”
