“I was looking for a new way to have shrimp, and this was also a perfect way to use up some potatoes. I used a low-fat mayonnaise because it's what I had on hand, and instead of seafood seasoning I substituted dill. I left out the pimientos and used less salt and kept the skins on the potatoes. This recipe is a keeper. Recipe courtesy of Taste of Home Contest Winning Annual Recipes 2010 and Rita Futral of Starkvillle, Mississippi.”
