Versatile? Dependably delicious? The perfect way to elevate any occasion? We like to think Prime Shrimp Cook-In-Bag and an array of the finest meats and cheeses already have a lot in common.
What should be on a charcuterie board?
The best charcuterie boards are all about contrast in tastes and textures. Combine sweet fresh fruit, creamy soft cheeses, salty hard cheeses, briny olives or pickles, spicy meats and tangy preserves.
So let's cut to the chase: Prepare a pouch of seasoned shrimp. Chill after cooking in a ice bath or by letting rest in the fridge. Add to your presentation and claim antipasti bragging rights until the next dinner party.

There is no wrong way to assemble a charcuterie board, so get as creative as you want. Deviled or hard-boiled eggs are a great addition as well as fresh or grilled then chilled vegetables. Surround with your favorite dip or spreads, including hummus, tzatziki or a knob of salted irish butter.
