"Best Ever. Must do often. D"
"Totally WOW! A first I didn't think onions & shrimp were good together: Boy was I wrong! My guests loved it. I did leave out the olives because I didn't have any in the house (next time I'll try it with them).Thanks Margaret :)"
"It is quite elegant in an ice bowl. Everyone fancies me a proffesional when I make it."
"Not sure what the fuss is all about. My husband and I love shrimp and found this to be totally inedible. The flavors did not compliment each other at all."
