Ingredients
Lime Cream cheese:
  • 250g cream cheese
  • 2 slices processed Swiss or Gruyere cheese, slightly melted
  • 2 fresh grated lime zest
  • ½ cup crushed peanuts
Instructions
  1. Lightly blend the cream cheese and the slightly melted Swiss or Gruyere cheese until smooth.
  2. Blend the zest of lime and crushed peanuts, and if necessary add some lime juice.
Caramelizing the shrimp:
  1. Briefly marinade the shrimp in 3 tbsp of Thai Basil Red Pepper Jelly. Remove shrimp from marinade.
  2. Quickly pan fry shrimp in lightly oiled skillet til cooked (pink) and marinade has caramelized. Remove from heat.
Assembling shrimp boats:
  1. Separate leaves from Belgian endives. Gently spoon in one generous tsp of lime cream cheese into the base of the leaf. Top with a scant of Thai Basil Red Pepper Jelly. Top with 1 caramelized shrimp. Sprinkle with crushed peanuts and zest of lime. Arrange decoratively onto a platter and garnish with lime wedges / curls.
  2. We found that little pebbles on the plates ensure that these "little boats" will remain secure and upright. Enjoy...you've got a beautiful appetizer!!
