This recipe is a throw-back from so very long ago! I love this, and so glad I was able to find once again. I made this last evening for our impromptu dinner party - and it took about 6 hours to chill. I used small shrimp and added about 1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning. This was so wonderful, and had hoped that I could of had some left for today. I don't, all gone within minutes!
