MY REVIEW

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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 31, 2011

It was really tasty and refreshing. I used frozen salad shrimp which is much cheaper than canned shrimp and it worked just fine.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 24, 2011

If I made this again I would only use half of the amount of pineapple, we thought it was too sweet.
