Tis the holiday season ! People will come and go and all I can think about is delicious food and baked goods.  I was putting up my christmas decorations and made this treat for myself.  This one bite appetizer is super easy and quick to whip up.  Elegant enough to entertain a crowd or to treat your own tummy on a cold night.  Might I suggest a glass of Pinot Grigio to go with it !

Ingredients:

1 lb of cooked shrimp ( you can use the frozen cocktail shrimp, just take the tails off)

1/2 Tbsp of olive oil

1 cup of finely chopped onions (use the frozen kind if you are in a time crunch)

1/2 Tbsp of finely minced garlic

2 Tbsp of Tomato paste

2 Tbsp of dried Tarragon

salt, pepper and red pepper flakes and a light squeeze of lemon juice– to taste.

Crackers to top with

Method:

In a pan, heat olive oil and saute garlic and onions till soft and fragrant.

Add in the tomato paste and cook for a min till the onions and tomatoes come together.

Cook for a few minutes till all the ingredients come together.

Take off the heat and cool.

Top crackers with the shrimp and serve warm.

Should you choose to turn it into a meal, toss the shrimp mixture with freshly cooked pasta and a dash of heavy cream and you have an elegant dinner !

Enjoy !
