Saucy Shrimp

Shrimp is a perennial party favorite, especially when it is drenched in a luscious marinade. While most recipes for marinated shrimp call for a vinaigrette type of dressing, this Saucy Shrimp is bathed in a creamy, tangy sauce. It is best if made the day before your party and is also delicious served as a shrimp salad on a bed of lettuce.
