This is an old recipe that my mother found in a drawer. It doesn't sound very good, but it is delicious.

Our family has enjoyed this shrimp dish for 36 years. I use 3 to 4 cans of shrimp and always rinse the canned shrimp very well. We put this in a fish mold and always serve with triscuit crackers. Read More

Actually I've had this recipe before and it's delicious. My aunt use to make this every year for christmas but I think she only used 1/2 can of the soup and green onion rather than regular. Great with vegetable crackers! Read More

This is an old stand-by recipe. I do prefer using fresh or frozen shrimp rather than canned. (When you read some negative reviewers total reviews you will begin to notice they didn't like much of anything they had tried.) Read More
