I use shrimp as an appetizer often. This is the best one yet! Delicious! I can’t count the number of people who have asked for this recipe.

My Mom made something similar in the 70's using canned shrimp and minus the olives

I made this minus the olives and it was really good. Definitely have to let the flavors meld overnight for best results.

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.

Made this for Christmas Eve! WOW! Totally worth making! Allow time to marinate overnight, if you can wait that long!
