Chill until ready to serve, and as with any seafood take care that your food doesn't sit at room temperature too long. Set your serving tray on crush...
Step 3: Prepare base
To serve your shrimp dip as single-serving hors d'ouevres, you need a nice base with a bit of crunch. I find crackers boring, so went with lemon cucumber and tomato for clean-handling yet healthy finger-food. You could use a cracker alone, or layered with cucumber, tomato, radish, or any other veggie you like.
Slice cucumbers and tomatoes, and arrange as shown below. Tomato slices should be slightly smaller than the base cucumber slices.
Be sure to use a very sharp knife, as a clean cut will make this much easier.
