Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way: any minute now it’s New Years and we should prepare for celebrations! If you are still not in the festive mood, we have a proposition on how to jingle all the way the holiday spirit into your home. But if your Christmas tree is already decorated, then just open a bag of Prima Grissini and continue reading.
Okay, so we were talking about the celebrations. Well-known ornaments like Christmas tree, decorations and Santa Claus pair really well with carefully chosen music to heat up the holiday atmosphere. We have prepared a list of modern classics that would even bring a smile to Grinch’s face.

Dancing pairs well with snacking
New Year’s dancing requires a lot of energy, and the old Serbian saying “A strong body, starts with a strong meal” is not in vain! This is the reason why your playlist should be paired with fast bites – your favourite Prima Grissini with cumin. Discover how to make this tasty dip with shrimps and garlic.
- 2 teaspoons of olive oil
- 400 g of cleaned shrimps
- 3 cloves of garlic
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 50 g of cream cheese
- 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
- 3 teaspoons of grated parmesan
- Lemon juice and lemon zest
- 2 teaspoons of freshly chopped parsley
How to make
Season the shrimps with salt and pepper, and bake them with garlic in the oven, using high temperature for 5 minutes, until they turn pinky in colour. Use a large bowl to mix the rest of the ingredients, add nicely chopped shrimps and return to the oven until it gets a golden-ish crust. When cooled, pour the dip into smaller bowls and garnish with freshly chopped parsley. Serve with Prima Grissini with cumin and enjoy this super simple bite!
May your celebration be pleasant and may the year ahead bring taste of living! Happy 2022!
