After my wife acquired a new job that required that she worked longer hours than me, I became the primary person to prepare dinner each night. I began to experiment with different spices and cooking methods. As I became more proficient, I decided to develop a recipe for a new appetizer using my two favorite seafoods, shrimp and jumbo lump Maryland Crab. Instead of Maryland style steamed shrimp, I combined the shrimp with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar and Old Bay Seasoning. I than sautéed until pink throughout. I allowed some friends and neighbors to sample and provide their opinion before I went further. After receiving a positive result, I continued with my process. I wanted to develop an appetizer that could be finger food or consumed with a fork. I have served this appetizer to many people and the result was them requesting the recipe for their use with other family and friends.
