I have made this many times and always get rave reviews. When pressed for time I have chilled for only 6 hrs -- still great taste. Instead of cooking the shrimp separately after the vinegar vegetable mixture has simmered for the 9 minutes or so I add the raw shrimp and continuing to simmer until the shrimp are cooked -- about 3 minutes. This is my go to recipe -- so simple but great flavor.
In this impressive buffet appetizer, sautéed shrimp marinates with vegetables in a tangy vinaigrette. The taste gets even better as it steeps in the flavorful mixture, so make it up to 2 days before your party.
