Great tasting & easy to make. I did add some minced garlic. Loved the fact that I could make it ahead. We enjoyed it with salad. This is a do again recipe!

I also made this for New Year's Eve & this is a "keeper" recipe. Very quick & easy, using everyday ingredients. I used part butter & part Benecol; also used skim milk. I had 2 lbs. of shrimp & I quadrupled the recipe, putting it in 1 large casserole dish. Very good!

I made this recipe for our New Year's Eve dinner. Both my husband and I loved it! I would describe it as almost a shrimp bisque. I served it as a side dish with crab legs, a potato dish and steamed broccoli. The only change I made was using uncooked shrimp instead of the cooked shrimp to prevent the shrimp from being tough. It was an easy recipe and I loved the fact that you could make it ahead of time. I did set it on the counter 15 minutes before placing in the oven. I will definitely make it again, thanks for posting it!
