These are so terrific. Try using fresh or frozen shrimp steamed correctly instead of canned shrimp. Then chop up the shrimp into smaller pieces. The texture comes out so much better. Don't over cook the shrimp or they will come out chewy. This recipe can also stand on its own without the shrimp. The taste is still fabulous. I think chopped celery is also a great addition. Especially if you decide to delete the shrimp.

There's alot of flavor going on in this recipe. Perhaps too much. Don't use the canned shrimp. It doesn't taste nearly as good as freshly cooked shrimp. Not really the same animal at all. Fresh shrimp are larger, so you do need to dice them a bit in order to incorporate them into the egg mixture. Don't be afraid to use other types of mustard in this if you don't care for dijon.

LOVE them!!! I'm always on the lookout for something different, and these are wonderful. I just about have to hide them, because if my husband finds them, they won't make it to the table. Cut back on the number of eggs, chop the whole egg up, and it makes great egg salad.

I made four kinds of deviled eggs and the shrimp eggs were gone 5 minutes after I set them down on the table. It was delicious.

These were good, but the filling was a little too soft. I would cut back the mayo a bit and add more as needed. The combination of lime juice and dill was a tiny bit overpowering after being refrigerated overnight.

Okay. I also made these with minced crab and it was was better as the taste was a bit sweeter. I think I still prefer plain 'ole deviled eggs though:-)

Excellant. Much more bite than regular deviled eggs. Very tasty. I did omit the shrimp but these were a hit. Addictive once you get past the fact they are not like regular deviled eggs.

I made this for a party and they were gone within minutes. Next time I'll make a double batch and add more hot sauce. I used the can shrimp versus the fresh and it was good! I will definitely make it again!
