My dear Aunt Alma gave me this recipe just after we were stationed overseas - for a taste of home. Cauliflower and shrimp are baked in a spicy cheese sauce. Adjust the amounts of spices to suit your taste. It is delicious as a main dish with buttered French bread or as a hearty side dish. Enjoy!

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a large casserole dish with cooking spray.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion in the butter until tender, but not browned. Stir in the Cheddar cheese soup, milk, shrimp, mushrooms and parsley. Season with cayenne pepper, black pepper, and Creole seasoning. Heat for a minute on low to blend the flavors.

  • Place the cauliflower into the prepared baking dish. Pour the contents of the saucepan over the cauliflower, and stir slightly to blend.

  • Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until bubbly. Sprinkle with paprika just before serving.

This recipe was incredibly easy to make. Most importantly it was delicious!! I changed two things: i used the zesty nacho cheese soup instead of regular and i doubled the amount of cayenne pepper. It was rich thick and filling. Read More

This had a great visual appearance but it tasted weird. I think the shrimp and the cauliflower just don't go together. I used the fiesta nacho cheese soup as one reviewer suggested which I like better than just nacho cheese soup. It didn't taste too cheesy to me as other readers wrote. Read More

I fixed this again and discovered that this was very good in a thick bread bowl (absorbs the sauce)or over a baked potato. Thanks for trying this! Read More

This was a hit on Thanksgiving. At first everyone thought it was a strange combo. But after tasting it they fell in love! Next time I will add Velveeta or maybe cheddar cheese. Read More
