Shrimps in Love - marinated freshwater shrimps wrapped in rose petals

This is my second post in a ”triptych” of delicious hors d´oeuvres made with roses as the main ingredient. Marinated fresh water shrimp, rolled in a freshly harvested, crisp rose petal. Imagine to be one of those shrimps…to lie with another shrimp…rolled in a rose petal…curled up next to each other! How cozy!
