Today I am sharing another one of our favorite family recipes, Shrimp Wild Rice Casserole! Just mention anything with shrimp in it and my kids instantly say yes! So since shrimp is one of things we all agree on I try to come up with ways to enjoy it and this casserole doesn’t disappoint.

This recipe of shrimp and rice smothered with cheese, then blended with cream of mushroom soup was first posted by Paula Deen via the Food Network some time ago. Of course I changed it up a little to suit our family’s tastebuds. I hope you’ll try it it was a keeper for us!

Saute shrimp, butter and garlic for 1-2 minutes.

  1. We’re rice and seafood eaters, so this combo sounds delish. Do you think the cheddar could be skipped?

  2. Oh, hubbs would fancy that one for sure!
    I’m not not a shrimp fan, but it looks amazing :)
