    Absolutely fabulous recipe! Taking into account others comments, here's some clarification: Use 1 teaspoon of tobasco sauce, as you never can tell how much 10 drops are. Add a good dash or three of Old Bay Seasoning and about 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper. Use Fillo frozen fully cooked pastry shells. Used hubby as a ginea pig last night and he ate a whole sheet of these yummy morsels! Excellent with a nice chilled white to compliment the creamy seafood taste. My next party will be a hit. And you can easily keep the simple ingredients for this recipe on hand to whip up in a moments notice to wow drop-in visitors!  -  08 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow - Oh Wow !! This are scrumptious. I love crab so this one is a definite keeper!! I sprinkled the top with Old Bay seasoning instead of paprika. This recipe wasn't as spicy as I thought it would be. Make extra - because these are addictive.  -  30 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I wish I could rate this with 10 stars! This recipe is truly outstanding and pretty to serve as well. Next time I think I will use more fresh shrimp and more hot sauce. I had plenty of filling and thus used three boxes of shells. Thanks for a great recipe!  -  04 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
