This made for a very fun and easy summer meal! It was super quick to prepare and fun to offer up the beautiful shrimp and kielbasa filled platter. We liked the dipping sauce but thought it needed more mustard (maybe?). Thank you for a very fun meal. It was so yummy!

This was so good...I cut it down to one serving...for me...a test run for an upcoming event...I really enjoyed the mustard sauce...it went so well with the kielbasa...the shrimp lacked the yummy flavor from the liquid due to not having enough time to absorb it...I also prefer serving my shrimp with cocktail sauce...so I'm going to also serve it along side at the event for dipping...made for FYC tag game...
