"Very good; quick and easy. Just drain the pineapple really well and pat dry to avoid a soupy topping."

"This is so quick and easy to make and it tastes delicious. It is definitely on my go to appetizer list. Used larger shrimp and just cut them up. No need to buy smaller shrimp special for this."

"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."

"I just found the cucumber shriimp appetizer.  You mentioned draining the pineapple.  How did you use the pineapple as I didn't see it in the recipe I have.  Thanks"
