"these are actually harder to make than they look, the prep time was longer than 40 mins and ours didnt look like the pictures, i think because the shrimp needs to be bigger. we will try it again, next time using jumbo shrimp and much more cream cheese would improve it, ours didnt look like the picture, but it tasted good."
