Shrimp Torte

This appetizer looks a lot more complicated than it is to make. You don't have to use a springform pan to make this. You could just layer it on a decorative serving dish or a bowl. I wouldn't do that, but you of course can. You may also substitute crab or lobster in this recipe, just please do not use that fake krab product. Or at least do not tell me that you did. Thanks.
