    For this recipe, I started with a standard crab rangoon recipe, and my
    taste buds are much happier with the changes. Using shrimp instead of crab
    is not only cheaper, but more flavorful, and you don't have to spend a lot
    of time picking the tendons (or whatever those are) out of the crab meat.

    I'm guessing that the worcestershire and tabasco are probably the work of
    my demented mind, but it works. I'd love to hear about people's thoughts
    if they give these a try. (You can fold them whichever way you like - this
    is just the way I'm used to doing it.)
