Sharing family recipes: Shrimp Apollo

It's not a secret that 7&4's Arielle Berlin likes to cook and she has her own stash of family recipes. But, she wanted to know what Northern Michigan had to share. She asked viewers to invite her into their home and teach her how to make their favorite family recipe.

First, she heads to Cadillac to make Shrimp Apollo with Scott Dunlop. The recipe is below. Enjoy!
