Lovely! I thought it was missing something so I added crushed garlic and that rounded it out nicely. DO taste your sauce before adding your prawns or other seafood. If it tastes like flour it means that the flour wasn't cooked off with the butter before the milk was added. Throw it out and go again, the temperatures of the mix once the milk is added are not high enough to cook the flour. What I prefer to do is to melt the butter first and then add the flour - equal parts butter to flour by weight. Cooked off properly, this will not taste like flour. Read More

I doubled the sauce because I was going to add 1 lb fresh shrimp. I did one thing right. I tasted the sauce before I wasted the shrimp. This tastes like flour. Read More

I added some garlic it just doesn't seem complete with out garlic-1 clove cooked with the flour and butter. Also added a little half and half and topped with fresh grated Parmesan Reggiano. I liked this pretty well and would make this again. Read More

I've been looking all over for a good Newburg recipe, and this fit the bill. It's a "keeper" as far as I'm concerned. Read More

I've been looking for a great Newburgh recipe to replace the discontinued Knorr sauce mix. This comes the closest to it. Read More

This was a great dish! Very simple and very tasty I added about 1/2 cup sherry to my taste. I put fresh broiled (3 - 6oz) lobster and 1# frozen shrimp. I used Pepperidge Farm Frozen pastry sheets thawed cut into 4 squares put shrimp and lobster chunks a little sauce sealed the pastry and 20 minutes at 350. Serve hot with sauce try twice baked Potatoes as a side. Awesome Read More

I would make this again. You may want to substitute cocktail sauce for the ketchup to give it a little more zip. I also substituted some claw crab meat for 1 can of shrimp. Read More

My husband and I really enjoyed this the kids less so. It was really easy and quick (always a plus!). I used imitation lobster since I am allergic to shellfish and it turned out fine. Read More

I made this for my first cooked meal in my apartment. I added some flounder to make it Seafood instead of just Shrimp. Served over a couple of flakey biscuits and it was just perfect. Read More
