Shrimp Spread

"I always clip the recipes from the JEMCO News so I thought I’d submit one. My dear Aunt Mary Ann always prepared this favorite for our family gatherings. It can be prepared the day before and refrigerated overnight to allow the flavors to blend together. Set out about an hour before serving for good consistency" - Shirley White, Commerce
