*NOTE: Original recipe stated fresh or frozen peeled, deveined med shrimp
with tails left on, if desired

**NOTE: Original recipe used 2 T olive oil

***NOTE: I located fatfree hash browns and that is what I used but the
original recipe used refrigerated shredded hash brown potatoes

****NOTE: Original recipe used 1 slightly beaten egg

*****NOTE: Original recipe used 2 T horseradish mustard...I used honey
dijon mustard

******NOTE: Original recipe used 2 tsp olive oil

*******NOTE: Original recipe used 3 T light mayonnaise dressing...I have no
idea what that is so I just used nonfat mayonnaise instead

Thaw shrimp, if frozen, and toss with the olive oil and the dill; set

In a large mixing bowl combine potatoes, soft bread crumbs, green onion,
egg beaters, 2 T of the mustard, 1/4 t oil, garlic and red pepper. Spray a
baking sheet with nonstick coating.

For each potato nest, pat 1/3 C of the potato mixture into a thick patty on
the baking sheet. Well, let me tell you...I couldn't get them to stick
together so I cheated a bit and mashed them slightly with the potato masher
and then squeezed them together...it worked for me. Depress the center of
each patty with the back of a spoon, forming a nest shape about 4" in

Bake in a 425F oven for 10 min. Spoon shrimp filling in center and bake for
12 - 15 min more or till crust is golden and shrimp are cooked through.
Remove from the oven; let stand for 5 min.

Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl combine mayonnaise dressing, remaining
mustard (there was no remaining mustard so I just added another 1 T), wine,
and the 1/2 t dill. Spoon sauce over each filled shell; top with fresh
dill, if desired.
