Seafood Newburg Casserole

"This is a recipe I found in one of the grocery store recipes booklets. It is very rich tasting and the sherry just gives it a great accent. Since I don't have easy access to fresh seafood, I used the canned crab and it was fine. Although I haven't tried it, I would feel comfortable using scallops or any shellfish to make this dish."

  1. This recipe was absolutely delicious! I also added a pound of bay scallops and a can of cream of shrimp soup which made it even richer. I served this with toast points which were fabulous! You don't need to measure the sherry, just make sure that all the seafood is covered in the dish while marinating.
  2. Loved this dish!!! I used one lb crab and one lg shrimp. Will try with lobster and crab for special dinners, thank you for this recipe Mary K!
  3. We really enjoyed this shrimp dish. The sherry makes it extra special. I halved the recipe with no problem at all (just baked it in a smaller casserole). Served this with asparagus and fresh sourdough. What a treat!


I'm a grandmother who loves having the grandkids around. My son is currently living with me (on a short term basis) so I get to see and spend time with his kids more than I ever had, and that's a great thing. I love trying new recipes and since I have found RecipeZaar, the new dishes have been streaming. Sometimes I think the kids would prefer a little break, but until they speak up, it's something new for them about everytime they visit with us. I don't consider myself a 'cook,' I can only follow recipes. To me a cook is someone who can come up with their own recipes and have success at it (like my daughter).
