Personal Notes:
This is a very easy crowd-pleaser. But please note that if you serve these when you have invited a bunch of 20-something fraternity boys over on the night of a KU football game and if you have cleverly disabled your TV so that your very sophisticated cocktail party does not turn into a tailgate party but have forgotten that there is a radio in the bathroom upstairs, you should not hang white fluffy bath towels in said bathroom or else you might end up with permanent bright yellow smudges on them from the turmeric in the shrimp sauce.
