    My guests love it. I spice it up even more by doubling the amount of green onion, chives and Tabasco sauce. A friend dipped french bread into the leftover sauce and that started a demand for dipping bread whenever I serve the shrimp.

    Very nice. I replaced 1 tablespoon of horseradish for mayonaise to balance the flavor.
