Celebrate the holidays or any gathering with these palate-pleasing hors d'oeuvres. Prepare a marinade for cooked shrimp that includes heating a mixture of soy sauce, ginger, vinegar, sugar, apple juice and salt. Then, let the shrimp marinate in this sweet-and-salt mixture with Asian flair for at least two hours. Not only does it make a delicious presentation, but it also will be the hit of your next get-together. You can also serve this shrimp as a weeknight supper with stir-fried rice or sautéed Asian vegetables.
