I thought the taste was a little too mild, but I made them for a party and everyone raved. They were gone quickly so I guess I just like a strong shrimp taste.

Made this recipe as written except tbe celery ribs. I used leftover crackers as a base for the spread. Will definitely make again for people who like shrimp.

I think it might be better to keep the celery and the stuffing separate until shortly before serving. The celery has so much water in it that I had trouble keeping the finished product dry, even with several layers of paper toweling underneath.
