For this make-ahead appetizer, you marinate the shrimp mixture before your party. Bring to room temperature when ready to serve.


  • 2 6 - ounce jars or one 12 ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts
  • 1 1/2 pounds cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 2 cups yellow or red pear-shape tomatoes and/or cherry tomatoes or 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved if large
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot or onion
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic (2 cloves)
  • 1/2 teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Combine undrained artichokes, shrimp and tomatoes in a large resealable plastic bag; set the bag into a deep bowl.
  2. For marinade: In a small screw-top jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine lemon juice, olive oil, basil, vinegar, shallot, sugar, garlic, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Cover and shake well. Pour over shrimp mixture. Close bag tightly, then turn to coat all ingredients. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 12 hours, turning bag occasionally. Before serving, let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  3. To serve, drain the shrimp mixture. Serve with wooden picks. Makes 8 servings.

From Midwest Living: Our food editor says to just omit the hot pepper sauce — the recipe has plenty of other flavors without it. Enjoy!
