    This was very very good. Loved the stuffing mixture, although I did leave out the celery because I forgot to buy some. I'll cut back on the stuffing mixture next time since it seemed to over power the shrimp. I'll just put a little on each shrimp next time. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for PRMR :)
