Cajun Shrimp Casserole

This is a recipe I was given when I first got married 25 years ago, and it has remained a favorite. Maybe because it's simple to make (don't let the long list of ingredients fool you). It also freezes well if made with fresh (not frozen or previously frozen) shrimp. It's great served with rice, salad, and some nice hot biscuits.

    Made this for the family and they really enjoyed it. The sauce ended up curdling a bit - maybe because I didn't warm the evaporated milk before adding it? My daughter has requested it again, so this time I'll warm it and see if it improves. Other than the appearance, the taste was very good.

    Really good tasting. Enough of a sauce that you can mix it with some rice.
