"I made this recipe for a family Christmas party and it got scarfed up almost before most of the other hors d'oeuvres made it to the table! Easy, too! Use fresh dill not only in the dish but as garnish as well. Fresh lime juice makes a big difference too."

"I would indeed make this recipe again, just not when my third son is at home. He is deathly allergic to seafood and I will not put this dish in front of him."
