“This recipe came from my sister, many years ago. It's made the same way as potato salad only you substitute shrimp and crackers for the potatoes. It's always the first thing to disappear at a party. I don't know if it was ever published anywhere or how many it serves.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb shrimp
  • 1 (1 lb) box Ritz crackers or 1 (1 lb) box saltine crackers
  • 3 -4 hard-boiled eggs
  • sweet pickle relish
  • helmann mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon French dressing


  1. Boil and season shrimp, to your taste.
  2. (To save alot of time, buy the shrimp that are precooked and already peeled).
  3. Boil eggs.
  4. When shrimp are done cut into small pieces.
  5. Chop eggs.
