Shrimp-Stuffed Celery

My family is proud to produce celery on the beautiful island of Maui. As you can guess, we take a lot of "ribbing" for working so hard in a tropical paradise. This appealing appetizer has a creamy filling that blends nicely with crunchy, fresh celery. —Shirley Watanabe, Kula, Hawaii
