Special Shrimp Balls

Every time this is made I think of a dear friend who loved shrimp. While she had a shrimp mold she always had at parties, she asked for this recipe to make and serve too! I took that as a high compliment! When I try some of this and some of that, I never know if it's a winner until people want the recipe! She thought so and I hope you will also.
