Lemony Shrimp with Capers and Dill

your new favorite finger food

My brother-in-law Larry renamed this “Easter Shrimp” it’s become our Easter brunch staple. This is another one of those great room-temperature recipes that’s easy to make and can sit out on a buffet for all-day snacking.

MAKE THE DAY BEFORE 

The dill and capers are awesome in this dish! And to enjoy them to full effect, I recommend making this dish the day before and storing it in the fridge overnight. That gives the flavors plenty of time to meld and seep into your shrimp.
