  Salad oil 1 Teaspoon
  Bay leaf 1 , crushed
  Cream cheese 3 Ounce (1 Package)
  Liquid hot pepper seasoning 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garlic powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon

Directions

Cover the artichoke with water; add 1 tablespoon vinegar per quart of water, the oil, bay leaf, and salt.
Simmer about 30 minutes, or until a leaf pulls away easily and its base is tender.
Cool, then remove the leaves.
Use the leaves that have a good edible portion on the ends.
Blend the cream cheese with hot-pepper seasoning, garlic powder, additional salt to taste, and half-and-half to make a smooth paste.
Spread this filling on the base of each leaf.
Place a small shrimp on top of the filling and sprinkle with paprika.
Arrange on a round plate or tray in the shape of a sunflower so each leaf is easy to pick up.
