’Tis the season, and the folks at St. Simons Island, Georgia, USA-based SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood are offering inexpensive kitchen hack suggestions to help home cooks put restaurant-quality shrimp and seafood dishes on their families’ tables or conveniently plan a party for friends and associates to celebrate the holidays.
For the first hack, wrap SeaPak Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp with slices of prosciutto and red pepper, bake, and you’ve got a simply stunning dish (as pictured above). For the second hack, use bamboo skewers and SeaPak Tempura Shrimp to re-create a favorite party treat at home — Tempura Shrimp Sticks with Warm Apricot Dipping Sauce.
