1 Shrimp Christmas Tree on Mon Nov 03, 2008 9:09 pm


2 pounds medium shrimp, fresh or frozen ( I prefer to boil mine in crab/shrimp boil gives a better flavor )
1 1/2 quarts water
1/3 cup salt
3 bunches curly endive
1 Styrofoam cone, 1 1/2 feet high
1 small box round toothpicks
Cocktail sauce

Thaw frozen shrimp. Place shrimp in boiling salted water. Cover and simmer about 5 minutes or until shrimp are pink and tender. Drain. Peel shrimp leaving the tail section of shell on. Remove veins and wash. Chill.

Separate and wash endive. Chill.

Starting at base of cone and working up, cover cone with overlapping leaves of endive and fasten with toothpick halves. Cover fully with leaves to resemble a Christmas tree. Attach shrimp to tree with wooden picks.

Cocktail Sauce
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons horseradish
1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
Generous dash of liquid hot
Pepper sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine ingredients and chill.

You can also add pickled onions and stuffed olives to tree as ornaments.
