Halloween Shrimp Cocktail Brain
This should unmold easily when inverted and smacked down firmly on a flat surface such as a cutting board. If not, try immersing bottom portion of the mold in warm water for a few seconds, then try again. If you want the texture of your brain to be more smooth, like pate, use your food processor instead of a knife when preparing your shrimp mixture. Add the vermicelli AFTER the other ingredients have been pulverized to perfection.
I buy bean thread vermicelli from Asian markets, where they come in a packet of 6 or 8 sections. Use one section of noodles for this recipe.
