New Years Eve Party Recipes: Garlic Shrimp Appetizers

When it comes to appetizers, we all have our favorites, whether it’s a New Years Eve party recipe, or a recipe for the Super Bowl…any old party will do when we want what we want. In my case, as with many, many more folks, that would be shrimp! I could eat lemon garlic shrimp every day of my life and still feel as though it wasn’t enough.
With this recipe, it’s important to use extra virgin olive oil since any other changes the flavor..and not in a good way! If you’re fond of tarragon, feel free to omit it. There won’t be a drastic change of taste.

This recipe is so simply, fast and delicious that I recommend doubling it if you’re throwing a party for more than a few people. It’s also easily adjustable to your own personal taste, don’t be afraid to experiment a little.
Give these a try at your next party, and have a safe and happy holiday!
