Now that spring is finally here, now’s the perfect time to try out one of our tasty and simple appetizers. Our poached shrimp and pineapple salsa is a quick, light appetizer that’s easy to make and tastes great.
Here’s the recipe from our very own American House Chef, James Nickleberry.
- 8 medium shrimp (deveined, tail-on)
- 1 cup of orange juice
- 1 cup water
- 2 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 teaspoon paprika
In a medium saucepan, combine your orange juice, water, lime juice, bay leaf and paprika. Bring your mixture to a simmer. Add your shrimp and let simmer for 7 to 10 minutes. Once they’re finished cooking, pat them dry with a paper towel and chill before serving.
To accompany your poached shrimp, you’ll be making a light and fresh pineapple salsa. You’ll need:
- 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
- 2 oz chopped green onion
- 2 oz chopped red bell pepper
- 2 oz V-8 juice
- 1 oz chopped cilantro
- 2 tablespoons squeezed lime juice
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeño pepper
- Salt to taste
Chop all of your fruit and veggies, combine, and mix thoroughly. Serve the salsa in a shot glass or small dipping tray alongside your chilled poached shrimp.
