    I made this last night from a pre-made mix I got from Addy’s…it came out pretty good, but now I will try this recipe! I was not sure how to make the sauce, so I made a Lime dressing which is Sour cream based. It was a recipe I got from you a long time ago (Campus Walk Apt days), and it was used with coconut shrimp when you made it. That was also nice.
