Wild Rice and Shrimp has long been a favorite of mine. It’s pretty easy to make and includes my favorite ingredients like shrimp and mushrooms. However, my sweet husband isn’t such a mushroom fan and while he likes the dish he usually picks the mushrooms out. So as a compromise I found this recipe from The Lady and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook. It was really good and just as easy to make. I did make a little bit of a modification since Charlotte isn’t liking when I eat cheese. I’ll include the original and my modification. Enjoy!
Shrimp with Rice
Two 6 ounce boxes Uncle Ben’s long-grain and wild rice
2 pounds shrimp, cleaned, peeled, and deveined
1 onion, diced and sauteed in 2 tablespoons butter
1 bell pepper, chopped
Two 10 3/4 ounce cans condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
16 ounces Grated Cheddar Cheese; reserve 1/2 cup for top
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
Remove seasoning mix from rice; do not use. Cook rice as directed on box. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix rice with remaining ingredients in a baking dish and sprinkle reserved cheese on top. Bake for 45 minutes.
My Modified Recipe:
Omit the cheese
Add Bread crumbs
Remove seasoning mix from rice; do not use. Cook rice as directed on box. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix rice with remaining ingredients in a baking dish and sprinkle bread crumbs on top to cover dish. Bake for 45 minutes.
