In a small saucepan, heat the brandy, water, and apricots until just simmering, then cover and turn off the heat. Let sit for 15 minutes. Mash the feta, milk, and tarragon together until almost smooth, adding a few more drops of milk if needed. Fill the Peppadews® with the feta mixture. Dry the shrimp thoroughly between plain paper towels. On a flat surface, arrange 4 of the shrimp into two heart shapes. Push a skewer across the tops of the shrimp, maintaining the natural curve.

Place a PEPPADEW® pepper inside each ‘heart’ and push another skewer across the middle, through the shrimp and the PEPPADEW® peppers. Repeat with remaining shrimp and PEPPADEW® peppers. Preheat broiler on high heat. Place the shrimp skewers on a broiling pan. Brush with the apricot preserves. Broil briefly (just a few seconds) very close to the heat until lightly colored. Set aside.

Remove the apricots from the brandy and cut into strips. Whisk together 2 tablespoons of the brandy with the remaining ingredients. Divide the greens between two plates and drizzle some of the dressing over the greens. Top with the apricot strips and the shrimp skewers. Makes two servings of Twin Hearts Apricot Glazed Shrimp Salad

Try This

Pair up shrimp that are approximately equal in size.
If they don’t have enough of a natural curve to form a proper heart shape, adjust the curve as they are skewered.
