I am not too keen on canned crab or shrimp, so I would use fresh. With regards to the cajun crabmeat eggrolls, it seems like a long time to cook shrimp for ten minute, and then the crabmeat mixture for fourty five minutes. I realize this is an old thread from 2002, but always nice to see recipes for appy's! The portobella mushroom and spinach with feta recipe sounds great. I think I would leave the mushroom whole rather than slicing it after grilling and then just add the salad mixture into the center of the mushroom to slightly wilt. I'll definately be trying this very soon.

May I respectfully suggest a different cooking method for the shrimp/prawns in this sandwich??

"Shrimp Melts

1 14" Italian bread
3/4 lb. cleaned shrimp -- diced
3/4 cup salsa
2 avocados -- sliced
6 oz. Monterey jack cheese -- shredded

Split bread in half lengthwise. Saute shrimp in med-size skillet with salsa for 4 min. Layer avocado on bread halves, dividing evenly. Spoon shrimp on avocado.
top with cheese. Broil 2-3 min. or until cheese melts. Cut each half in half."

On a baking sheet pour about 1 T. olive oil and mix this with 2-3 cloves of minced garlic. Clean your shrimp (leave tail shells on) and toss with the oil/garlic mixture. Bake in a 450 F. oven for 3 minutes; remove from oven and turn over. Return to oven for 3 more min. Remove and either use as is or you can refrigerate (be sure to scrape all the 'goop' off the b. sheet with the shrimp) until cold.

Best method I've found for cooking shrimp yet.
