Reviews for Shrimp Toast Cups
"Made these for Christmas Eve's appetizer. Rave reviews!! Everyone wanted the recipe. I used frozen shrimp, not canned."
"Question: Do these toast cups stay fresh if made the day before?"
"Oh and I used fresh shrimp =)"
"Used this recipe last night and it was a hit! I added to it a little though! I used pre-made phyllo cups instead of making the bread cups. I used wasabi horseradish and I added finely diced red pepper to the mix as well as lemon juice to taste. That really ramped up the flavor!! Oh and I didn't use the dill sprigs!"
"These were absolutely delicious!! They certainly disappeared quickly as you said! :)"
"I was looking for something different and made these for the holidays. They were a smash. I did however use small frozen shrimp and cut them up instead of the canned shrimp because the canned was outrageously expensive in comparison."
"I made these for a gathering last night and everyone went crazy for them. I think next time I might try using whole wheat bread instead of white."
