When you are looking for easy shrimp recipes for dinner, why not consider a shrimp casserole?
I love the way casseroles can bake unattended leaving me free to make a salad, set the table and relax a little until dinner’s ready.
Easy casserole recipes are perfect for entertaining too, since they can usually be made ahead, refrigerated and then put in the oven to bake before your guests arrive.
The next time you need quick easy dinner ideas using shrimp, remember to think one dish dinners and especially easy shrimp casserole recipes like these.

This easy shrimp casserole with wild rice is a huge hit with my husband every time I make it.
1 package (6 ounces) long grain and wild rice mix, uncooked
1/2 cup butter
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Sat and pepper to taste
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 pound uncooked, peeled and cleaned shrimp
1/4 cup slivered or sliced almonds
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 11 x 7-inch casseroled dish and set aside.
Prepare the wild rice mix according to the package directions.
While the rice is cooking, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and green pepper and cook, stirring often, until almost tender about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper and cook until heated through 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cream, prepared rice and shrimp, stirring well to combine.
