DIRECTIONS

  • TO MAKE PUFFS------------.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  • In a medium size saucepan, combine butter and water; heat to boiling.
  • Stir in flour and salt using a wooden spoon.
  • Stir until butter/flour mixture forms a thick, smooth base that follows the back of the spoon around the pan.
  • Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  • Using a wooden spoon, mix in eggs one at a time until mixture is thick and smooth.
  • (This is very important to make sure that the mixture is smooth.) Drop by teaspoons onto a lightly greased cookie sheet; space 1 inch apart.
  • Bake in preheated 400 F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until puffed and golden; let cool.

  • In a medium bowl, combine shrimp, chopped celery, chopped green onions and chopped hard cooked eggs; mix well.
  • In a separate bowl using a whisk, blend together mayonnaise, salt and lemon juice; fold into shrimp mixture and chill for about 1/2 hour in refrigerator.
  • TO ASSEMBLE PUFFS-----------------.

  • Remove any soft membrane from inside puff and discard.
  • Stuff with chilled filling.
