Shrimp with Roasted Pepper-Horseradish Dip

To help keep cooks happy before dinner is served, offer this appetizer. Make the sauce up to three days in advance and refrigerate. To save time, you can use four bottled roasted bell peppers instead of roasting your own. Prepare the shrimp — or buy precooked — the day of the party.

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper
