    Admittedly, one does not often see a tomato aspic that firm and stately these days. I actually think it sounds rather delicious. All the ingredients are more or less natural, and the flavors work together: tomato, oregano, horseradish, Worcestershire. Take the shrimp out of it, and you almost have a jellied gazpacho.

    How are you supposed to eat that and why would you? Congealed Seafood/Bloody Mary minus the Vodka?

    I’m kind of afraid to say it, but that is exactly the type of dish I have been browsing the Internet looking for! I think I’m going to try this. I’ll let you know how it goes!
