More quick recipes for party foods

I particularly like this Garlic Ginger Sauce as a serving sauce /marinade with shrimp. Place the shrimp in a leak-proof storage bag or tupperware container and add the sauce; cover and refrigerate for an hour or so. Arrange the shrimp and sauce on a serving platter with the sauce over the shrimp.   If you use frozen shrimp (defrosted, of course) this is a snap to prepare and serve.

Garlic Ginger Sauce


2 Tablespoons low-sodium Soy Sauce
1/2 cup  Joe and Son's Olive Press  Honey Ginger Balsamic Vinegar
2 cloves of fresh garlic, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup Joe and Son's Olive Press Dark Roasted Sesame Oil
1/4 cup Joe and Son's Olive Press Eureka Lemon EVOO
salt and pepper to taste, if desired


Pour both oils into a pouring cup and set aside.

Place the remaining ingredients into a mixing bowl.  Stir to combine.   Slowly whisk in the oils to emulsify.

Makes about 1 cup; 1 tablespoon per serving...12 servings

In addition, this can be used as a sauce for grilled meats, a dressing for salads or steamed vegetables or even as a marinade for tofu.


Goat Cheese Marinated in Walnut Oil


1/2 lb. goat cheese, sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/2 cup Joe and Son’s Olive Press Roasted Walnut Oil
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon or lime peel
2-4 teaspoons of Joe and Son’s Olive Press Roasted Garlic Pepper Herb Blend  ( to taste) 
2 ripe tomatoes, finely diced, reserved for topping

Place cheese slices in a single layer in a shallow glass dish. Blend together remaining ingredients and pour over cheese.

 Allow the mixture to marinate at least 4 hours and up to one day.

 Serve with toasted French bread slices and top with chopped fresh tomatoes.
