Party Appetizer Recipes ? So Easy And So Affordable!

These are two of my favorite party appetizer recipes that I used to prepare in parties! They are quick, easy and the ingredients are available in any store.

Note: Both party appetizer recipes yield 8 servings.

Cocktail Kebabs

Ingredients:

8 large Shrimp, cooked

1 Garlic clove, crushed

2 Green onions, trimmed

2 tbsp Lemon juice

1/2 Red bell pepper, seeded, cut in thin strips

2 tbsp Olive oil

1 tsp Sugar

1 tsp Coarsely ground mustard

8 small Ripe or green olives

1/4 tsp Creamed horseradish

Instructions:

Remove heads and body shells from shrimp but leave on tail shells. De-vein shrimp by removing black spinal cord. Cut each green onion in 4 daisies. Put shrimp, green onions, bell pepper and olives in a bowl. Mix garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, sugar, mustard and horseradish. Pour over shrimp mixture, cover and marinate at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove ingredients from marinade and thread equally on 8 wooden picks. Drain on paper towels.

VARIATION: Add small slices avocado to shrimp mixture.

Crispy Wontons

Ingredients:

3/4 lb Ground Pork

1/2 tsp Grated Fresh Ginger Root

8 Chopped Water Chestnuts

1 lb Wonton Skins

1/4 cup Chopped Green Onions & Tops

Vegetable Oil For Frying

1 tbsp Soy Sauce

Catsup

1/2 tsp Salt

Hot Mustard

1 tsp Cornstarch

Sweet & Sour Sauce

Instructions:

Combine pork, water chestnuts, green onions, soy sauce, salt, cornstarch and ginger in medium bowl; mix well. Place 1/2 teaspoon pork mixture in center of each wonton skin. Fold wonton skin over filling to form a triangle. Turn top of triangle down to meet fold. Turn over; moisten one corner with water. Overlap opposite corner over moistened corner; press firmly. Heat oil in wok or large saucepan over medium-high heat to 375 F. Deep fry wontons, a few at a time, 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm with catsup and hot mustard or sweet & sour sauce, as desired.
