Shrimp Cocktail Parfait

I love layers of things. This parfait is basically a dip for the shrimp. You serve it with a spoon to capture the different flavors in each layer. It looks elegant, colorful, and intriguing, and people will find surprises the deeper they go. The lovage is not essential, but adds a fresh celery-ish taste. You can enjoy adapting this recipe with all sorts of your own ideas for ingredients.
