Poor man's shrimp cocktail
My sister recently gave this recipe to me and I have to say it's just amazing.  A great vegetarian appy, great for the beach or a party.  If you didn't know the ingredients, you may be fooled into thinking that you were in fact eating shrimp cocktail (eyes closed of course).

  Poor Man's Shrimp Cocktail
1 head of cauliflower cut into bite sized pieces.

  Bring to a rolling boil:
3 quarts of water, along with
1 onion, quartered
1 lemon, quartered and juiced
3 cloves of garlic, smashed
1/8 cup of kosher salt
1/2 cup of Old Bay or your favorite crab boil
Boil this for 10 minutes, then remove the onion, lemon and garlic.  Add the cauliflower and return to a boil.  Turn off the heat, cover tightly and let this sit off heat for 5 minutes.
  Drain and cool on a sheet pan, refrigerate, and serve with your favorite cocktail sauce.

I know. I was the same way but I kept thinking about it. It’s just an interesting concept.  It’s a great alternative for vegetarians, shellfish allergies and it’s also parve.  The chef who serves it, his mom used to make for all the kids when they visited the lake. Cute.
