After some (not much) soul searching, my New Year's Resolution a few years back was to have more appetizers in my life. In all honesty I haven't been as successful in that resolution as I would like, but I do try. The concept of tapas and antipasti is ... brilliant! This colorful shrimp dish from finecooking.com is light and full of flavor. Jeff and I enjoyed the shrimp, along with some roasted zucchini, and called it dinner!
If you have to share this dish, don your battle gear and dig in. These little morsels are tasty! Fine Cooking's recipe for Salt-and-Pepper Shrimp With Garlic and Chile looks amazing and calls for a serrano chile and larger shrimp. Because I couldn't find either, I made a couple slight changes and used jalapeno and smaller shrimp.
