Reviews for Cucumber Shrimp Appetizers
"The tiny shrimp had no taste of shrimp. One only tasted the pineapple. I had a guest and was very disappointed with the results."
"I loved the lower carb idea of using cucumber slices. I did think the pineapple was not something that we would like to pair shrimp with, and used fresh steamed shrimp that I just cut up. The rest was a good combo."
"I thought the canned shrimp less than tasty. However had two requests for the recipe and that got good reviews from others."
"Cool, light and refreshing. Loved it as is."
"Very good; quick and easy. Just drain the pineapple really well and pat dry to avoid a soupy topping."
"Not a fan!"
"It was really tasty and refreshing. I used frozen salad shrimp which is much cheaper than canned shrimp and it worked just fine."
"If I made this again I would only use half of the amount of pineapple, we thought it was too sweet."
