"Why would you use beef broth instead of clam broth? Way too much bread crumbs and fish filets too small."

"I made this tonight, and was very pleased with the outcome, I used cooked shrimp, since that is all I had, and skipped the cooking procedure, other than that followed the recipe exactly, will definitely do it again.

can't wait to serve it to company! thanks Marie for the recipe. this is a keeper!"

"I used lump crab claw meat instead of shrimp, my husband gets gout from shrimp. I wanted to eat the stuffing by itself, yummy! I had a bit of stuffing left and made little crab cakes with it. I'm sure its just as good with the shrimp. Everyone loved this dish."

"We found this to be a restaurant quality dish..beautiful presentation as well. You could easily put this together ahead of time and freeze this as well. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp, though. I think the next time we are going to try substituting the shrimp with crab meat. We made the whole meal suggested in the magazine with this dish: Tomato Soup with Basil, Arugula Summer Salad, and Italian Cookies."
