We have a card group that meets once a month, to play canasta. Each of us bring a snack for 4-6 people. The monthly hostess makes a salad and supplies coffe, tea, or a cold drink, as we take turns in each members home. Last month the snack was shrimp. This is my recipe to take for our lunch. I finally get to use my 1955 shrimp (or fish) platter! Yes we also take copys of the recipe that we share with the gals. Nancy Joyce....7/24/12
