This novel twist on Buffalo wings is a terrific way to kick off a casual party. Serve the shrimp and dip with cucumber spears, celery stalks, and wedges of crunchy fennel.

This has become one of my two new go-to summer app recipes (the other being Black Bean & Pineapple Guac from Better Homes & Gardens). It's so easy and everybody loves it! But a couple of changes: since shrimp tends to come in 2- or 1-lb bags, I make 2 lbs, rather than 1 1/2, and just increase the spices by a bit (rounded rather than flat spoons). I find there is way too much dipping sauce even for 2 lbs. So I cut the sour cream in half. And I use light sour cream.
