Lemon-Marinated Zucchini & Shrimp Crostini
Raw zucchini isn’t the most popular ingredient but when you marinate it in garlicy lemon goodness, it takes on a new texture and is crazy delicious. You’ll want to get your zucchini marinating at least an hour before you plan on assembling your crostini. This recipe would also be nice as a salad but bite-sized crostini work really well for pairing this appetizer with a refreshing cocktail.
Yields: 20 crostini

Pair this appetizer with Cucumber Bee’s Knees. When pairing, first take a sip of your cocktail then a bite of your appetizer. Take one more sip of your cocktail to see what the flavors of the food bring out in your cocktail. The citrus-forward cocktail will brighten and enhance the shrimp just like a squeeze of lemon would!
