A shrimp cocktail with orange, a variation on the traditional shrimp cocktail. With homemade bourbon sauce. It becomes a fresh and creamy starter.
When I was little every Christmas, Easter or any other special occasion a shrimp cocktail was served as a starter. A classic recipe (I think anyway). And what a great thing to bring it to live again, but then in a new style.
So I combined the shrimp with fresh oranges and spooned a creamy, homemade bourbon sauce on top. And it became a delicious entrée for any occasion. Old traditions become new ones. I love that.
How can you see if your shrimp are fresh?
- Fresh shrimp smell like the sea, salty and fresh.
- When your shrimps are unpeeled, you can press the skin and it should crack a bit.
- The skin should be shiny and the head hard. When the skin is dull or the head is soft, the shrimp is no longer fresh.
