I modeled these sweet-spicy pork-and-shrimp meatballs after the filling in Asian wontons. They're a family favorite, whether I serve them alone as an appetizer or over hot cooked rice as a main dish. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia
This recipe's specially seasoned rub gives tender juicy pork a slightly spicy flavor. You'll watch in delight as these delicious sandwiches disappear from your buffet table! I also like to prepare these for weekend lunches.
Seafood is plentiful here, and crayfish is my favorite. I like to serve this tasty appetizer while the main course is finishing up in the oven.
Suggested romance: Shrimp may be substituted for the crawfish.
As Forrest Gump would say, shrimp and grits go together like peas and carrots in this appetizer. You’ll love the rich sauce, the hint of heat and the refreshing citrus flavor. —Gene Peters, Edwardsville, Illinois
Add a touch of Southern hospitality to your festivities with our upscale version of a slider. The crawfish gets a touch of spicy goodness from the chipotle mayonnaise and jalapeno.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Whenever we have a fish fry, we begin the meal with this dip. My children and grandchildren love it, and it gets rave reviews at picnic and potlucks. Someone always requests the recipe. —Edna Carter, West Point, Virginia
