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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

I used this recipe for a baby shower and made finger sandwiches on sour dough bread. It was really yummy. I used some extra dill and added a pinch of salt. I think I will slightly less lemon juice next time because it was a little runny or maybe increase the mayo but it was really good and was a big hit. Thanks! Read More
