Shrimp Remoulade in Endive Leaves

Red Belgian endive is the most dramatic choice for this flavorful and refreshingly light dish, but the more common white variety is also a lovely contrast to the pink shrimp. These make terrific hors d'oeuvres, or serve 4 or 5 pieces on each plate for a festive starter. The rémoulade sauce can be made up to 2 days ahead, but don't assemble the dish more than an hour or two before serving for endive to be at its best. Recipe from the Whole Foods Market website.
