Christmas Tree Shrimp Cocktail

For 12 people ()


  • cocktail is always a popular choice at holiday parties. People generally swarm around and fill their plates. Displaying the shrimp this way really shows them off with a holiday flare!
  • 3  pounds cleaned, cooked large shrimp, chilled
  • 1  bunch kale
  • 1  large Styrofoam cone about 12-24” high
  • 2  lemons cut into wedges
  • sauce

Christmas Tree Shrimp Cocktail Directions

  1. Separate kale and rinse and dry. Cut pieces in half.
  2. Use toothpicks to pin kale to completely cover Styrofoam cone.
  3. Place cone on a platter and cover bottom of platter with kale as well.
  4. Use toothpicks to attach shrimp to cone. Reserve extra shrimp for refills.
  5. Put small serving bowls with cocktail sauce around the bottom and garnish throughout with lemon wedges.

Additional Information

I like to put a star or an angel on the top of my shrimp tree to finish it off. Also, cauliflower florets can be put around the base instead of the kale to look a little like snow, and they taste great dipped in cocktail sauce as well.
