Great recipe however waaaaay to soupy. I marinated my thawed shrimp in the lemon and lime juice for about 5 hours. I then drained the shrimp and mixed the salad as per directions but omitting the lemon and lime juices. The salad wasn't quite as soupy and had even better flavor. I added more celery too.

This smelled wonderfully, however I think there was too much lemon juice for my family's tastes. It was rather sour and very runny. I would reduce lemon juice and up the mayo because the "sauce" was not sticking to the shrimp which made it difficult to eat in a pita.

Great shrimp salad, quick and easy! I used less lemon juice and also only put in enough light mayo to hold it together. Great in a wrap sandwich!

I just tried this recipe today. My husband and my guest loved. However, I did make a few additions to it. I always season my shrimp before I cook them(since they have little or no taste on their own); so I used a little cajun seasoning and adobo. I also added a third stalk of celery. Overall, the suggested ingredients were great!!!! I will make it again.

this recipe was really great, but i'm not a big fan of mayo, so i used half mayo and half sour cream. i didn't have a lemon either, so i did lemon pepper. it was delish!

I first tasted this at a party and could not stop eating it! This salad is delicious. Thankfully, the woman who brought it gave me the recipe and told me where she found it--SaladRecipe.com!

Loved it! Made in a pinch for a impromtu in law gathering and everyone raved about it. I did add 2-3 pounds of imitation crab meat to this recipe so it was not soupy and it helped stretch the amount for a large group.

Delicious. I made this with fresh dill from the garden, and it was very refreshing on a hot summer day. I served with fresh baked bread. Yum. I substituted sour cream for the mayonnaise, and it was light and creamy.
