In true form this weekend, I opted to make a Giada recipe from her show. Sweetnick's blog featured it a few weeks ago and I thought at the time, a sauteed shrimp cocktail would be really fun to try.
The dip is an interesting blend of yogurt, mayo, mustard and maple syrup with some turmeric thrown in (which gives it the yellow colour). I am surprised I liked it as yogurt based dips never rate very high with me.
The sauteed shrimp were simple to make although make sure you don't over cook them as they will become rubbery quickly.
An easy appie recipe, this will leave you plenty of time to kick back on your deck and visit with your loved ones. You can find the recipe HERE.
