This is a simple, quick supper that is ready for serving in less than half an hour. Feel free to substitute crab for shrimp and add any vegetables you have on hand, the result is just as tasty! Serve over hot linguini, garnish with a sprinkling of fresh parsley.

The first time I made this I did not like the flavor of the canned shrimp at all but it was decent enough to tink with. The next time I used 1lb medium fresh shrimp shelled and deveined. Saute them before the vegetables set the aside while cooking the vegetables and the sauce and readd at the last second. Much tastier than canned! Read More

I didn't use canned shrimp in this but used frozen already cooked shrimp. Since it was already cooked I just added the shrimp at the end and when the mixture started to boil again I served. I didn't have the veggies called for so I used 2 vine tomatoes which gave the sauce a bit of a pinkish color. I didn't follow the instructions for adding the flour but since it sounded like making a roux I just did what I normally do. I cooked the flour first then added the milk and stirred to make sure there were no clumps. Flour tastes like flour unless you cook it (very briefly so it won't burn) so that was my adjustment. Bf seemed to love this and I thought it was pretty good too. I served over salmon burgers--his idea and although it sounds weird it worked. We'll probably eat the leftovers over some pasta maybe spaghetti as I think it would go well with it. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
