    I made this recipe last night for guests, it was really unique. I used 2 bags of 1-lb frozen shrimp with shells and they came out great and served 4 adequately. The cocktail sauce was good too, but with onions & garlic it was a little strong after the fact (maybe cut back on the amounts). I would definitely make this recipe again.
