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!
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'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.
Directions don't give tips on boiling the srimp with liquid Crab Boil/seasonings. Recipe good & simple.
