Of all the holidays we enjoy in this country, the 4th of July might just be my favorite. The joy, colors and fireworks are the true symbols of the celebration. Ever since I've lived in the U.S., I commemorate this day with pride and gratefulness for a nation that has welcomed me and allowed me to have a family and give them a bright future.
In the United States, the signing of the Declaration of Independence is celebrated on the 4th of July. Everywhere you go in the country you'll find parades and fireworks.
I have plenty of reasons to celebrate, and I love getting together with my friends and family and delighting them what I do best: a few delicious recipes!
For this Independence Day, I'm preparing a sophisticated shrimp cocktail with a lemon aioli. It's a wonderful recipe with simple ingredients that combine to create an explosion of flavor to complement the 4th of July fireworks!
