Today’s party shrimp appetizer is one that can be prepared at the last minute. That is one of the great things about shrimp, they cook fast.

About 2 hours before your party, you place the shrimp in a simple marinade. Then before the guest arrive or even as they arrive, you cook the shrimp in the oven. They cooking in 4 minutes – 2 minutes per side. Not only are they easy to make but they are also delicious.
