Hoisin Shrimp Recipe: This Tasty Appetizer or Main Dish Cooks in 5 Minutes

I taught a holiday appetizer and dessert class recently at Elawa Farm. This hoisin shrimp was one of the recipes the group learned to make. The quick and easy shrimp recipe is great to serve at holiday parties and family get-togethers.

These hoisin shrimp cook in less than five minutes. The Asian sauce is flavorful and complements the shrimp perfectly. You can serve these shrimp as an appetizer or for dinner with a side dish.
