Good, just half the mayo and milk. You can also make it easier by using one can cream of shrimp mixed with one can milk to make the sauce -which adds more seafood flavor. I also used one box of wild rice pilaf (Near East brand, 6oz) for the rice, which added more color and flavor. Also added 1/2 cup of shredded cheese into the mixture for extra creaminess. Good base recipe and a lot of room for alterations. ***update*** I used the shrimp peel and boiled it in the milk before adding to the rice mixture and it was SUPERB. Try it.



I always make this casserole for my non meat-eating friends. I added chopped celery, chopped waterchestnuts, and shredded Monterey Jack cheese to my casserole ingredients. Up until you add the cheese and breadcrumbs, you can easily make this a day ahead. (I personally like this recipe to sit 24 hours to let all the flavors meld.)



This was pretty good. I did change the recipe, I used 4-5 cups cooked rice, 2 cups shredded cheese, only 1 1/2 cups mayo, 1 Tbsp of hot pepper sauce, and 2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning. It was even better the next day.
