The recipe sounds great, but being from New Orleans I'd be shot if I used canned shrimp. LOL

Hmmm. Well, I don't eat shrimp, but I know lots of people who do. So, this would make a nice addition to a holiday open house.

I so love shrimp; thanks so much for this recipe which sounds yummy.

Isabel Roman said...

Yum! I can't say I'll try this for New Year''s awfully close for me to think about a new recipe, but it looks delicious and I will definitely try it soon!

This will be good for New Years Eve!! I am a true seafood eater. I was born and raised on the Coast in Mississippi and now live near Baton Rouge. Always trying new seafood recipes!! Thanks!!

Mmmmm, munch, chomp, chew, this is fantastic!

Anna Kathryn Lanier said...

Oh, CJ, I don't use canned shrimp either...Shoot, I should have caught that. I use a pound of fresh shrimp that I boil in salt. You could also add shrimp boil to this and make it spicy, that would be good.

Judy, did we talk already? Where near Baton Rouge? I used to live in Gonzales. My daughter still does....did we meet a few years back at the Baton Rouge Chapter? I've been to a couple of their things....the first reader's luncheon and when John Foxjohn gave a talk...also I won first place in your contest a few years back.

Anna Kathryn Lanier said...

oops, it does say you can use a 1/2 pound of fresh shrimp. I do use a pound, because I double the recipe....

Sylvie said...

I've made the canned shrimp with mayo it! but never added cheese..and everything's better with cheese :)

I am not the Judy Cox (author of children's books). I wish I was. I live between Baton Rouge and Hammond. Gonzales is not far from me, I go to the outlets all the time there.

Sounds really good. Just the kind of thing I would love.

Another lovely recipe, Anna. Can't use it for New Year's as I had Christmas Eve this year instead. But it sounds great for any party - and I adore shrimp. Thanks
