“It takes only minutes to prepare the shrimp. If you choose to serve it warm, make the salsa first. The shrimp also can be cooked several hours ahead, refrigerated, and brought to room temperature before serving.;) These shrimp look so beautiful served on individual Chinese soup spoons, they make wonderful appetizers. Coastal Magazine Publication, June 2005 edition. With so many bright flavors and spices, this dish embodies the color and heat of the tropics. A ripe, lush Chardonnay from Northern California will cool the palate but also have the weight to stand up to this full-bodied culinary presentation. I recommend Ramey Cellars Russian River Valley Chardonnay (about $35). - Jeff Morgan. Chill for 15 minutes. :)”
