Cut the center out of lettuce leaves and make long strips of the leaves, about 4 inches wide and as long as possible. Start pinning leaves to the cone with toothpicks until completely covered with green, leaving ruffled edges to stick out between shrimp and other items.
Makes rows of shrimp, tomatoes, pineapple or whatever you choose on the cone securing them with toothpicks. You can leave toothpick handles or push them into the cone so the shrimp, olive or tomato can be picked from the tree with the fingers.
NOTES : Create a festive centerpiece with this Shrimp Appetizer Tree. You can fill it with a variety of savory bites to be enjoyed by your guests.
