Nada’s Tips & Tricks: If you can’t find dulse flakes, try crumbling up some seaweed sheets.  I left this as an add-on for people who like seaweed.  When I cooked the shrimp, I coated them with Old Bay Seasoning to give them a little punch. Adjust the horseradish depending on how hot you like it…taste along the way until you get the right heat from it.  We had this scrumptious roll with potato and corn chowder – a filling meal!
