Shrimp Casserole -- Southern Living

This is from Southern Living. So good. I posted as written. However, if you can actually find "cream of shrimp soup" send me some as I have never seen it. NOTE: I sub 1 can cheese soup & 1 can cream of celery for the two cans of cream of shrimp and add some extra shrimp and I think it is good! Prep time includes time to cook rice and shrimp in skillet. :) Also, I will separate this into TWO casserole dishes, then cook one all the way (follow recipe through to the end) and the other I freeze right before sprinkling with cheese. I am jsut careful to eat it within about one month since there is seafood in the casserole. Also, sometimes I make half chicken/half shrimp or one of each. When I add chicken instead of the cream of celery soup I use cream of chicken. I always use the cheese soup. Really the possibilities are endless :) Also, add some cayenne pepper if you like it spicy! We ALWAYS add cayenne!

This is wonderful as is, however next time - and there will be many next times i will add some sliced (fresh) mushrooms and even more cayenne pepper. for the topping i used a mix of grated sharp and parmesan cheese and panko. yum!

Was a big hit! I used the Campbell's cream of shrimp soup. Made 2 casseroles. One was made with panko and the other with breadcrumbs. I also made one spicier than the other.

This deserves more than 5 stars. Made as stated but as I sampled before putting in oven I felt it just needed a little something so I added ground red pepper and some white cooking wine. I also used Panko crumbs. Even though this was good exactly as written the wine and red pepper took it one step further. Yum, delicious! Thanks for posting. I had no trouble finding the cream of shrimp soup in our small little town at any of our 3 grocery store but it was pricy. Well worth the price though. It is made by Campbell's. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.
