A twist on shrimp cocktail that makes the perfect party starter. To eat, guests dip each shrimp in the spicy mayo and then in the breadcrumbs.
Make Ahead Tips
The breadcrumbs and mayo may be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Store separately in airtight containers; refrigerate the mayo.
This was inhaled by everyone. The consistent comment was that it was so unusual and unexpected, it was almost addicting. Based on that, I don’t think I would make it often but definately when I wanted to change things up a bit.
I expected to love this recipe, but the only thing I liked were the garlic breadcrumbs. They were truly excellent, and I'll be making them again. Unfortunately, the mayo/aioli just did not turn my crank at all. We usually use any leftover aioli on sandwiches, but since we didn't like the herb combo or the texture, I finally scooped into the food waste recycling bin. It's a great idea...but that particular mayo didn't work for us.
Such a great and creative recipe...really has the wow factor for guests! I must admit I did cheat on the breadcrumbs and fried them with some oil and garlic. Can't wait to make it again!
