Casserole of Shrimp in Garlic Butter (Shrimp De Jonghe)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

I think that in the 50's and 60's every special casserole had "cooking sherry" and "buttered bread crumbs" and parsley. This is another one of my mother's recipe from the big plastic bag. I swear this recipe says it has a "lusty" flavor.

I changed it to fit my candida diet so I eliminated the wine and bread crumbs and added lemon as the other chef recommended. This was delicious!!!!!
