I was looking for another way for us to enjoy shrimp and I am so glad that I came across this recipe. This is amazing. Since I didn't have individual ramakins I used a very small casserole dish and made this for 2 people. The only thing I might do differently next time is add a bit of garlic. This was wonderful thank you Doreen. Read More

I sauted diced onions and sliced mushrooms in the melted butter before adding the flour etc. I also didn't have garlic croutons and substituted bread crumbs seasoned with some garlic and herb mix. My husband and his friends loved this. Tasty and easy. Read More

This has become a favorite with me and my husband. It's so rich and comforting. The flavor of the sherry really adds a lot (I use a dry cocktail sherry). Read More

I didn't have enough shrimp so I made up the difference with cod and peppered catfish which worked really well. Like another reviewer I added sauteed onion and mushrooms. I also added chopped parsley to the fish mix for flavour and used a little more paprika to give it a bit of "kick." This is an easy to prepare flavoursome and healthy meal. Thanks! Read More
