    It was a good recipe, but it was pointed out to me by a few people at my gathering that it did not taste like shrimp. The shells were hard to stuff too. I would make this recipe again, though. Good.  -  31 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this recipe for my sisters baby shower. The theme was "Think Pink" and most of the food was pink. Not only did this dish look great on the food table, the guests enjoyed it. I would definately use the recipe again.  -  22 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
