This was a little bland for our taste. With a little spicing up, it became darn good. First, I substituted finely diced celery for the water chestnuts, then added 1T horseradish, 2T finely minced sweet pickle and 2t dijon mustard. It was good, but when I made it the following time, I substituted Cream of Tomato soup for the mushroom, substituted celery for chestnuts, and once again added the horseradish and sweet pickle. My friends and family preferred it made with tomato soup.


This was a really quick & easy recipe, but I would not waste good shrimp on it! There is just no flavor to the recipe, I tried adding different spice which helped, but it took a while to doctor it up.


A very good recipe, just needs a little spicing up. I added 2 Tbs of southwest seasoning and that made a huge difference. I'm thinking about trying tabasco next time. Also, I used the small canned shrimp you find in the international food aisle, made prep time a lot easier. Better on day 2, so I make it the night before a gathering.
