Fresh Pea Pods Stuffed with Shrimp Dip

Recipe

Crunchy & Lemony: Fresh Pea Pods Stuffed with Shrimp Dip

This bite is lemony and light. It’s a little bit fussy to plate, but worth it for the freshness of the flavors together. I used an xacto blade to carefully cut a slit into the tops of the pea pods (use if you feel confident) and a pastry bag with fancy tip to make them pretty. If you don’t have the proper pastry bag, you can put the shrimp dip into a plastic bag and cut one of the corners off. It will be difficult to insert the dip with a spoon, or other utensil.

Makes about 40 bites

STEAM THE SHRIMP

24 shrimp (51-60 count)

Steam the shrimp for 2-3 min. Finely dice.
