Marinated Shrimp and Artichokes for Easy Entertaining

Marinated Shrimp and Artichokes is a make-ahead recipe, ideal for holiday entertaining. It comes together in 15 minutes using precooked shrimp. Allow 8 – 12 hours to marinate and serve in a trifle bowl or individual martini glasses.

You can throw this appetizer together in 15 minutes if you start with cooked shrimp.


For a quick and flavorful way to cook raw shrimp, roast them in the oven.


Here’s how:

Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails on. Toss them with olive oil, salt and pepper and spread them in a single layer on a sheet pan. Roast for 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated 400 degree F oven, just until pink, firm and cooked through. Set aside to cool.

Yield: Makes 8 servings

Hands on time 15 minutes, marinating time 8 – 12 hours


Here are the ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (0.75-oz.) envelope Italian dressing mix
  • 1 pound peeled and deveined, large cooked shrimp (21/30 count)
  • 1 (14-oz.) can artichoke hearts, drained and cut in half
  • 1 (6-oz.) can large black olives, drained
  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 1 (4-oz.) package feta cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (I used crumbled feta since my grocery store was out of block feta )
  • Optional: Small fresh basil leaves for garnish 


Directions:

  1. Whisk together balsamic vinegar and next 4 ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Stir in shrimp and next 4 ingredients. Cover and chill 8 to 24 hours.
  3. Garnish with basil just before serving. Serve with a slotted spoon.



I doubled the recipe for a party which is just the right amount to fill a  trifle bowl.

If you want to be fancy, serve in a martini glass.


I’ve taken this appetizer to a Christmas party several times and it tastes just as good out of a plastic cup and it does served in a martini glass.  :)
