So retro, but still so cool. Shrimp cocktail was born in the 80’s and so was I so maybe that’s why it’s that cold appie that I always go back to.  I’ll be honest, I will even settle for a shrimp ring if I’m at someone else’s party.  BUT, if you really want to impress yourself, your loved one, your guests, whomever it may be, please watch. You’ll thank us later 😉 -Katherine
