Marinated Shrimp with Lemon Dill Sauce

Marinated Shrimp with Lemon Dill Sauce is an appetizer dish that makes use of peeled semi-cooked shrimps. The preparation of this dish is a bit similar to how we make our “kilawin” although some of the ingredients are not common in a typical Filipino pantry.

I tried this appetizer while having some wine and it was a good combination – in my opinion. The taste is a little bit sour with a hint of sweetness and you can feel the creamy texture brought about by the mayonnaise and sour cream. This will make a good appetizer during cocktail parties and gatherings.

Maybe it’s time for you to raise your palate to the next level, don’t you think?
