A great recipe, although I had to make some subs due to regional differences, I live in France! I also cut the recipe right back to serve just two people. I cannot get cream of shrimp soup here, so I used a packet fish soup made with milk and creme fraiche - worked like a dream! I also omitted the celery, as I had none in the pantry and chucked a few pimento stuffed green olives in instead, again, they worked brilliantly. I used grated gruyere cheese for the topping along with homemade fresh French breadcrumbs. This was eaten with fresh parsley as a garnish for lunch today and was VERY much enjoyed thanks! Made for the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #34 and also for the One Pot Wonders event in the Photos Forum. Merci. FT:-)
