  • Crush the crackers and stir into the 2 tbsp of melted butter.
  • Sprinkle the buttered cracker crumbs over the top of the casserole and sprinkle with paprika if desired.
  • Bake at 350 degrees until crumbs are lightly browned and casserole is bubbly.
  • Note: 3 1/2 lbs raw shrimp= 2 lbs cooked shrimp.

  • Because it makes such a large amount you can also divide in half and use one now and freeze the other dish.
