Deviled Shrimp

I have used this recipe countless times. This has been a go-to item for me when I was catering, and it was an original recipe from my first episode ever of the VeryVera show! Enjoy it in a bowl, or place it in a mold.


Note: These quantities are for a large mold. For smaller quantities, cut the recipe in half.
