Louisiana Style Shrimp Casserole
Spice up dinner with a peppy shrimp dish complete with a biscuit topper.
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 cups frozen bell pepper and onion stir-fry (from 1 pound bag)
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
2 tablespoons Original Bisquick® baking mix
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper sauce
12 ounces cooked deveined peeled medium shrimp, thawed if frozen, tail shells removed
3/4 cup Original Bisquick® baking mix
1/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add garlic, stir-fry vegetables and celery; cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender.
Stir 2 tablespoons baking mix into vegetable mixture until blended. Stir in tomatoes, salt, pepper sauce and shrimp. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until bubbling and thickened. Pour shrimp mixture into ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish.
In small bowl, stir 3/4 cup baking mix, the milk and egg with fork until smooth. Pour over shrimp mixture.
Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Bake Time: 30 minutes
Make the shrimp filling ahead, spoon into the baking dish, cover and refrigerate. When ready to bake, just stir up the baking mix topping and bake as directed.
Jazz up the look of this seafood sensation by sprinkling the top of the unbaked casserole with a tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley and a teaspoon of Cajun seasoning.
This southern favorite tastes just as delicious with 2 cups diced cooked chicken in place of the shrimp.
