Wow, this was really great. I had purchased a can of cream of shrimp soup by accident and searched for a recipe that I could use it in. I came across this one and I am so glad I did. I followed the recipe exactly and added the soup when I added the shrimp and water because the recipe doesn't say when to add it. The pepper flakes add just the right amount of heat and we loved the crunch from the chow mein noodles, which I think are a must. This dish has a great asian flavor to it and was so simple to make. My husband and I are fighting over the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for the great new add to my dinner rotation. UPDATE! - I can no longer find cream of shrimp soup at any store. Go figure! So now I buy cream of celery and I purchase shrimp top ramen and use the flavor packet to mix with the soup. Still tastes great!
