Medium bowl filled with water and ice
2 teaspoons Shrimp and Crab Boil~liquid
10 pieces extra large Shrimp
10 Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry Cups
5 teaspoons Cocktail Sauce
4 tablespoons Sour Cream
1/2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoons Sriracha
Blueberries and Strawberries 
Lettuce Leaves and Grape Tomatoes


Make an ice bath by filling a medium bowl with ice and water. Set in fridge.
Peel and devein shrimp. Prepare a pot filled with hot water and the shrimp and crab boil. Bring to a boil. Drop shrimp in and boil for 3-4 minutes. Remove shrimp from pot, and rinse with cold water. Immediately place shrimp into water bath that you prepared earlier.
Let sit in water bath until completely chilled. The water bath stops the shrimp from cooking, so they will not become rubbery. Remove from water bath and refrigerate until ready to use.

Prepare puff pastries according to package directions.
Place a small spoonful on to each puff pastry. Top each dollop of sauce with a cooked shrimp. Garnish the plates with lettuce, tomatoes, blueberries and a strawberry.

    1. Thank you Nikki! I used shrimp and crab boil. I'm sorry, I mistakenly left out the "b" in the original recipe. However, it is a liquid and it does exactly what you said, adding a fantastic depth of flavor! I have used it many times, and I love it!
