"I thought it was just OK. I think I should have really pressed the juice out of the pineapple. I used chopped salad shrimp and I suspect the flavor was not as good as if I had bought big shrimp and chopped them up. I'll try it again."

"Very nice with celery or melba slices, etc. You'll want to double or triple the recipe for a party of any size. I also plan to double the hot pepper sauce, as I like a little kick. (for heat lovers--you can't really taste the hot pepper sauce as written). I also toasted the pecans. This went over very well."

"I made this for a family get together and as soon as I tasted it decided to double the recipe so there would be leftovers. I didn't double the salt though and used walnuts instead of pecans. Delicious!"
