Paula Deen's Wild Rice and Shrimp Casserole

(Photo and recipe are by Paula Deen)


I took a picture of the casserole I made and deleted it somehow. This is REALLY good. If your husband is like mine - he won't eat anything with the name "casserole" in it so I just called it Wild Rice and Shrimp Supreme and he liked it.


Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) package wild rice
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce can) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cups grated sharp Cheddar
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

Cook the rice according to package directions minus 1/4 cup water. Drain and cool.

Bring 2 cups water and 1/2 tablespoon salt to a boil in a medium saucepan and cook the shrimp for 1 minute. Drain immediately and set aside.

Heat the butter in saucepan and saute the pepper and onion until soft, about 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the rice, soup, 1 1/2 cups of cheese, shrimp and vegetables. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well. Spray a 9-inch square aluminum cake pan or an 11 by 7-inch glass casserole dish with vegetable spray. Place the mixture in the pan and top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake for 30 minutes, until bubbly.

I made this a few months ago and my husband loved it. He is anti-casserole too.

We enjoyed this one last week... made with homemade cream of mushroom soup and we used ground beef in place of shrimp ... :) Comfort food at it's finest.

We make this with shredded chicken and add in a can of drained french style green beans... My grandpa didn't like it much, so it was dubbed "Garbage" at my house 15 years ago. (Wow - can't believe it's been that long ago)

I made this last night and included a package of frozen broccoli since I didn't have a green pepper - it was delicious!

Beth said...

Quick question -- did you guys bring the water to boil with the shrimp in it or did you add the shrimp to the boiling water? Thanks!
