Has been a favorite appetizer for more than 20 years. I use a small can of crab meat and defrosted salad shrimp (squeeze all the water out of them) instead of all shrimp. I also have substituted low fat cream cheese, lite mayo, and low sodium cream of mushroom soup to make the dish a bit lighter. I present it in a crab shaped mold over a bed of lettuce greens. Still tastes yummy. Great because it is made ahead of time. My kids loved to dive into the leftovers when they were younger (if there were any). Serves a large crowd.



Just made this AGAIN!!! Please try this. The requests that I get for this recipe is constant!!!! This deserves 10 stars! I added two minced JALAPENO'S to the mix for an extra "kick". My girlfriends raved that it was awesome, a real crowd pleaser.. Some wished that they could make a sandwich out of it. Please try it, it will not look like much until it is cold, I was sooooo happy with the outcome.



This molded "mousse" tastes great! I will definitely make this again. Next time I will chop the shrimp a little smaller, though, or use two-three cans of drained tiny shrimp. It is also very pretty if you use a decorative mold.
