Quick and full of flavor
Get your shrimp fix with this easy to prepare and family-pleasing meal. All in one pot (with rice on the side). Didn't have tomato paste, substituted tomato sauce for paste & water. Also substituted our favorite seasonings for parsley, Old Bay and salt. Sprinkled tobasco on adult portions. Mmmmm! Will definetly make this one again and again.
Simple and Great
We loved this recipe. Living on the gulf coast, I used fresh peeled and deveined shrimp instead of the frozen. I cooked them in a pan with a little olive oil and cayenne. I also substituted cayenne for the old bay as others suggested and used fat free evaporated milk. I will definately make this many more times.
Very Flavorful and Easy!!
This meal has a lot of flavor. It is very easy and quick!! I enjoyed it very much!! I will make this agian.
This was very good. My family loved it. I used angel hair pasta instead of rice. My husband will not touch it if there is rice in it. The next time I will use a heavier noodle like linguine.
I liked this recipe but there was to much parsley. I'll make it again but use cilantro and I'm going to try chicken broth instead of water. It also could have used some extra tomato paste. My 13 yr old daughter loved it.
It is hard to get my husband to eat rice, but he did with this and loved it. It will go into my "week night" file. Great!
this is a keeper
Very easy to make, i used creole seasoning and it was really good and spicy.
A Definite Keeper!
My husband is the only one in our family of four that likes shrimp. The kids and I detest it, though I had to use up the shrimp in the freezer. After preparing this meal (with added oregano), I had seconds, one of my boys scarfed down fourths and my husband says it's his favorite shrimp recipe. I guess I will be buying shrimp again.
This dish was wonderful! I have a very picky newlywed husband. He was very skeptical when he saw the dish at first, but with the first bite he asked when I was going to make it again! This dish is wonderful when you make it and still great the next day!
very good and easy to make
This dish i really top rated. My friends love the taste of this shimp dish. Will make again
Creamy shrimp over rice
This was a very easy recipe to make and my husband and I enjoyed it very much. I am always hesitant to try something new because my husband is not very willing to try new flavors. I hoped he would like this so tried it.
This dish is absolutely wonderful. I used 2 teaspoons of creole seasoning instead of Old Bay seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon Texas Pete hot sauce. The taste was perfect. Will make again - probably for guests next time since it turned out so well.
southern style creamy shrimp over rice
This is the first time making it and was delicious. My family also enjoyed it. I have very picky kids and they loved.
Great Dinner Idea
I made this for my family and they loved it. I have a couple of picky eaters, but I had no complaints! I will definitely make this again. It was easy to make and quick too.
Over and over
This dish is very appealling to the eyes but also the palet. So tasty and yet so easy to make. All your friends and family will enjoy this dish. Filling but not overdone.. Just a great dish. Thanks
This is a great recipe!! Second time fixing it and each time my husband has love this dish. My 2.5 yr old loves the sauce and the rice together. she normally eats at least two-three tablespoons of it. I have added imitation crab meat this time and scallops the last time. Fixed rice and spinach with it. My 2.5 yr old gave me the idea to try it with sausage next time.
Could be a apart of a romantic dinner or a meal to impress someone. Add the spinach and perhaps a glass of wine w/ it. And you didn't have to go to a fancy place!
This recipe reminds me of growing up back home in Louisiana. It tastes just like shrimp etouffe! I had to juggle around the seasoning to get it the way I wanted it, but the basic recipe is definately something I will use over and over again. My 2 year old loved it and my husband who is from India said it tastes like some of their own shrimp curries. It was just great! 5 stars!!!
Southern style creamy shrimp
My teens are very picky eaters and they loved this dish. Really a very easy one dish meal. I would like to try it with scallops next time. Definitely worth making!!!!
This is a very good recipe but it needs a 2 teaspoons of cajun seasoning.
Southern-Style Creamy Shrimp over rice
My family really enjoyed this shrimp dish. We eat a lot of
shrimp - and like new ways to serve it.
Sweet taste/easy to make
This was an easy recipe to prepare. I prepared it with Old Bay Seasoning. Next time thou, I would use the Creole seasoning; for my family thought this dish should be spicier. Need the hot pepper sauce or this dish has a sweet taste.
Southern Style Creamy shrimp over rice
Slightly sweet taste, needed a little more salt, too creamy.

I have fixed this twice since running across the recipe. My son loves shrimp fixed any way and really liked this. It is easy, tasty and reheats beautifully for lunches (if you have any leftover!).
A finicky cook
This was an easy meal to make. My family is picky about the way we eat shrimp. I expected a so-so family review, but was told by everyone this was a great meal, I need to keep this recipe and make more often!
