Lemon Caper Marinated Shrimp

This cool and refreshing make-ahead appetizer is sure to be a hit at any dinner party.

In addition to these killer Kumquat and Fennel Smash cocktails, I also picked this make-ahead seafood appetizer to serve at our citrus themed Supper Club dinner.

I spotted this dish over on Velva’s Instagram account earlier this year and knew I had to make it sometime soon.

I really enjoyed the mix of ingredients in this dish. I’m all about capers lately, and the poppy seeds were a really nice addition. It’s tangy and slightly sweet. There were a lot of onions, so maybe next time I’d cut it down to one.

It makes enough for a crowd, and was a big hit with my Supper Club.
