An unusual, creamy shrimp appetizer, with a little crunch, that isn't like any gelatine you've ever eaten! One pound of shimp serves 20-30 people, so this is an inexpensive way to treat your party guests to shrimp! It's always a favorite. If you make several molds and have one left after a party, it will keep for up to 3 days.

This is a definite keeper!! I had so many request for his recipe I`ll be e-mailing it. I did kick it up with a teaspoon of hoseradish and a pinch of pepper flakes. Just to good!
