Red Lobster's Shrimp Tree
Serving Size: 4

Ingredients:


Cooking Directions:

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 styrofoam cone (18, 20, 22 or 24 inches
high)
Toothpicks
Curly lettuce, mustard greens, or kale
Cooked large shrimp -- tails on
Combination of cherry tomatoes, black
olives,
green olives, pineapple cubes, marinated
mushrooms, or baby corn - (select 2)
Cocktail sauce -- for shrimp
Lemon wedges -- for garnish

Cut the center out of lettuce leaves and make long strips of the leaves,
about 4 inches wide and as long as possible. Start pinning leaves to the
cone with toothpicks until completely covered with green, leaving ruffled
edges to stick out between shrimp and other items.

Makes rows of shrimp, tomatoes, pineapple or whatever you choose on the
cone securing them with toothpicks. You can leave toothpick handles or
push them into the cone so the shrimp, olive or tomato can be picked from
the tree with the fingers.

Garnish with lemon wedges. Serve cocktail sauce in a separate bowl.

This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
