This Week's Question

I love to serve your Roasted Shrimp Cocktail for a dinner party. Can this be made ahead or should it be served warm?

From Marilyn - Venice, FL

I normally serve Roasted Shrimp Cocktail at room temperature; they don't have to be warm. Of course you can make them in advance, but I find refrigerating the shrimp changes their flavor and texture. I would prep everything in advance, and roast the shrimp up to an hour before you plan to serve them.
