With a name like Gisclair he or she must be from the "Bayou". Anyway, although this is a popular recipe from Southeast Louisiana, I've played with it by adding garlic, a couple of shots of tabasco, dash of chili powder (just like I do with Shrimp Boulets) Now the recipe posted here is (Ce Bon) don't get wrong. Everyone has their own additives. Great recipe!!! I wish everyone knew about our Cajun heritage and food.

I made this for the superbowl and it was not a hit. The flavor was ok but the texture was just weird and it was not an appetizing presentation. I replaced about half of the tomato soup with cocktail sauce and added some horseradish which was a nice addition, but it was a weird fish loaf. Only about an 8th of the ring mold was eaten by a crowd of 9 people. I will not be making this again. I'm glad I tried something new and different but based on all the positive reviews I was expecting better.

I've made a variation of this recipe for years. I use a small food processor to finely chop the shrimp, celery, and onion. I Here in Maryland the "add-in" has to be OLD BAY seasoning!

I've also used this recipe for years and everyone likes it. It freezes well so is handy to have on hand for a quick appetizer.

This is a great recipe, but try it made with Miracle Whip. It's less oily and tastier

Made this for Christmas Eve and it was a hit. You can use canned shrimp, but be sure to rinse it well in very hot water for the best taste.

This has been a family favorite for years.. Long before the internet had ever been a concept. I was shocked to see it here, but then again, everything is on the internet right? When I make this for gatherings, people are usually afraid to try it, and then after I convince them to, they always love it! Even non-seafood lovers like me love this great cracker spread!

I had this at a friend's house, looked it up on here according to what she said the recipe was, and it is the same exact thing. It was really good, and sounds easy! When I have an opportunity to make it I will add some Kletchner's horseradish.
