The South's Leading Party Food.
With the holidays approaching, there are numerous parties to attend and to give. As I mentioned earlier, our carnival season is also in full swing and will continue until the beginning of Lent. So much good eating to do.
This is one of my favorite ways to serve shrimp at cocktail parties and everyone always mounds a heaping pile on their plate, either the first time around or the second. Enjoy!
