Easy & Delicious

These light and delicious hors d'Oeuvres only take
a few minutes to assemble. They are perfect to tray pass or
as part of a stationary appetizer display.

Cucumber rounds, sliced thin - I like the Persian Cucumbers

Smoked salmon

Creme fraiche

Fresh dill

Lemon slices

Simply place a few slices of salmon on the cucumber rounds. Add a dollop of creme fraiche and garnish with dill. It's important to use high quality smoked salmon and fresh dill. Sprinkle dill on your platter and serve with sliced lemon. Enjoy!

Killer Shrimp Returns

Killer Shrimp has returned to Marina del Rey - with an expanded menu and a wonderful view.

If you have missed their mouth watering shrimp cooked in an indescribable sauce of garlic and spices you will not be disappointed. The shrimp come three ways - with pasta, with rice or in a large bowl covered in the sauce. The bowl of shrimp in sauce is the most flavorful but keep in mind you will need to peel these.

While the last Killer shrimp was strictly shrimp - the new restaurant has added appetizers and several entrees such as steak, salmon and lobster tail to the menu. Their New England clam chowder is amazing and unlike most versions, it's loaded with tender clams.

Killer Shrimp only takes reservations for parties of six or more and the wait is presently long. If the wait is too long - the lounge area has a great view of the Marina and offers open seating. The appetizers and all three versions of their shrimp are available there. Pryor Events are fans of Killer Shrimp.

My personal favorite - shrimp in a delectable broth, served with bread for dipping.
