Made this for dinner last night. My husband loved it! Would make a great appetizer for parties too.

This looks pretty delicious. I've been looking for new ways to incorporate shrimp. Thanks!

Why ruin a dish using fake crabmeat. Only the real thing will suffice in this luscious looking recipe. Plan to try it soon.
