Wonderful

B Smith from MS

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.

    Quick and full of flavor

    Christina Woody from Lake In The Hills, IL

    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

    KRISTINA HAYNES from FRIENDSWOOD, TX

    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.

    mmmm

    Cynthia Kirk from BEAR, DE

    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.

    creamy shrimp

    Rose Jeffries from BADEN, PA

    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.

    "Shrimply" Delicious

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    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!

    A Definite Keeper!

    Julie Shearer from SC

    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.

    Great!

    Nicole from

    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!

    Creamy shrimp over rice

    Jan Bos from PALOS HEIGHTS, IL

    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.

    Family Hit

    Nichole from

    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!

    Sooo Good

    Audrey from Houston

    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!!!

    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

    Phyllis Olson from Flint, MI

    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.

    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

    Nancy Zelms from Illinois

    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!
