Replace the Chips & Dip at Your Super Bowl Party With This Unexpected Ina Garten Appetizer

Heaping mounds of chips and generous sides of dips, freshly slathered BBQ chicken wings, and just-delivered boxes of pepperoni pizzas: This is exactly the spread you won’t find at Barefoot Contessa host Ina Garten’s home the day of the Super Bowl. How do we know this? The author of 11 cookbooks just shared her version of chips and dip, Roasted Shrimp Cocktail Louis; and it’s, as she put it, “over-the-top delicious.”

“Instead of the usual chips and dip for your Super Bowl party, how about serving Roasted Shrimp Cocktail Louis? It’s over-the-top delicious, and so easy to make for a crowd,” Garten captioned the mouthwatering image of roasted shrimp with a scallion- and pepper-sprinkled dip comprised of mayonnaise, chili sauce, lemon zest, horseradish, Sriracha, Worcestershire sauce, and capers.

Rather than cooking shrimp in big pots of boiling water, Garten wrote, she buys the shrimp already peeled (smart move), and she tosses them on a sheet pan with one tablespoon of olive oil, one teaspoon of salt, and half a teaspoon of pepper. Garten then roasts the shrimp for a quick 10 minutes — until they’re firm and just cooked through.

“I promise it will be everyone’s favorite dish at your party!” she assured.

Once the shrimp and dipping sauce are set out on the table, Garten recommends also setting out a separate bowl for discarded shrimp tails.

The beginner-level recipe, pulled from the pages of Garten’s latest cookbook, Cook Like a Pro, serves eight to 10. And if you want more Garten-approved, elevated Game Day appetizers that’ll please any crowd, oh, she has plenty.
