    twissis's Note:

    This unique recipe was originally titled "Alaska Crab Wrap Sandwich" (Source: Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute). It was intended to be a main course for 4, but crab is expensive here & not readily available, so I adapted it as a starter course for 8 using shrimp, amended it slightly and renamed it "The Elegant Wrap".

      Mmm!! Tasty! I halved the recipe, used whole grain "wraps" instead of tortillas, left out the dill, and added 1 tsp minced shallots. The flavor of the brie and shrimp melted together was FANTASTIC! Positively a do over!

      Upon my first bite I died and went to heaven...then came back down really quick to polish off the rest. I stuck to the recipe except for the use of dill in the sauce, simply because I didn't have any. The family adored this, too. Not one morsel had remained on their plates.

      Oh my, Oh my! I relished every bite of this wrap. The only problem is you won't be able to stop after just eating half of the wrap- it's so good you'll eat the whole thing! Oh well, it's worth every single calorie! I did follow the directions exactly and there wasn't any problem at all! Thanks Twissis- Loved this!
