  • 1-1/2 cups cold water

  • 6 medium lemons
  • 1 package (5 ounces) frozen cooked salad shrimp, thawed, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped seeded peeled cucumber

Nutritional Facts

1 serving equals 194 calories, 19 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 43 mg cholesterol, 245 mg sodium, 2 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute. Cook and stir over low heat until gelatin is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat; whisk in mayonnaise. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until partially set.
  2. Cut lemons in half; juice lemons, reserving 3 tablespoons juice (save remaining juice for another use). Scoop out and discard pulp. With a sharp knife, cut a thin slice off the bottom of each lemon basket so it sits flat; set aside.
  3. Set aside 2 dozen shrimp for garnish; chop remaining shrimp. In a small bowl, combine the cucumber, olives, sugar, horseradish, salt, paprika and reserved lemon juice; fold into gelatin mixture. Fold in chopped shrimp and whipped cream.
  4. Spoon into lemon baskets. Garnish with parsley and reserved shrimp. Chill until set. Yield: 1 dozen.
