Summertime appetizers galore are happening’ in my kitchen these days. Loving these crunchy shrimps with zhoug sauce. You can serve just like this as an appetizer or make it a meal by stirring the zhoug sauce all over the crunchy shrimp and mixing with your favorite greens and some rice. um YUM.

This is a simple marinade and dredge of just flour, no breading so it’s super simple to make with most likely ingredients already in your pantry.

For the zhoug sauce, I love to make this one when I want to clear out my herbs that may be going bad and salvage them in this beautiful and delicious way.
