Garlic Roasted Shrimp Cocktail from Around the Table

Shrimp cocktail is perfect for almost any occasion. Whether it’s appetizers for a summer seafood barbecue or just a quick snack, shrimp cocktail is always a hit. The Garlic Roasted Shrimp Cocktail from Around the Table by Martina McBride is a deliciously seasoned take on the classic recipe. Roasting the shrimp locks in the garlic, lemon, and salt and pepper seasoning, and dipping them in Martina’s own spicy cocktail sauce recipe adds another level of flavor. This is a recipe we can’t wait to try!
