At a church buffet luncheon,this was served by a friend, Jo-Ann, and I loved it. Every so often I would tell her how much I enjoyed it, and she'd reply: It's so EASY, and it disappears whenever I bring it to a potluck. She shared her recipe with me. I have recently made it, and I made three large portions to be served with lettuce. It can be made in smaller dishes, to serve more people. I used V-8 Juice.

How to Make Quick Tomato Aspic-with Shrimp

Step-by-Step

  1. I made this with whole cooked shrimp, but next time I will cut each into about three pieces. I only used celery and green olives; and no basil.
  2. Since I wanted it to be my lunch, I used three cereal bowls for molding, and there was about a cup left over in another container. So it makes plenty!
  3. The cold shrimp helped it set up fast. I actually left it overnight in the refrigerator. Unmold on crisp lettuce and serve with mayo and whipped cream.
