Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter diced into small cubes
  • 1 ½ pounds raw peeled and deveined shrimp*
  • 2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice
  • 1 can condensed Cream of Celery soup NOT diluted (I used Campbell’s Healthy Request)
  • 1 15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 can petite diced tomatoes do not drain
  • 1 sweet onion diced
  • ½ red bell pepper diced
  • ½ green bell pepper diced
  • ½ cup diced celery
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Creole seasoning you can reduce it to 1 teaspoon if you are serving the dish to children and you want it to be mild
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • Hot sauce and sliced green onions for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
  • Spray a 13-inch x 9-inch casserole or baking dish with cooking spray. Spread diced butter around the bottom of the pan.
  • In a large bowl, stir together shrimp, uncooked rice, condensed soup, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, onion, bell peppers, celery, garlic, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper.
  • Pour shrimp mixture over butter into prepared baking dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Stir well, cover tightly again, and bake for an additional 35-40 minutes, or until rice is fluffy and liquid has been absorbed.
  • Serve with hot sauce and sliced green onions, if desired.

Notes

*I like to use Jumbo or extra-large shrimp in this recipe because they have a longer cooking time and will not get overdone before the rice is finished cooking.
Cooking for Two? You can cut all of the ingredients in half and use a 12-ounce bag of shrimp and an 8-ounce can of tomato sauce, baking the meal in an 8- or 9-inch square dish. Alternatively, you can prepare a full recipe, but divide the ingredients between two square baking dishes. Bake one casserole for dinner, and wrap the other dish tightly and store it in the freezer for a later meal.
Want to Prep Ahead? This dinner can be prepared in advance and kept in the refrigerator until you're ready to bake it. It's also freezer-friendly! Just prepare the casserole but do not bake it; , wrap tightly with foil, and store the freezer for up to 3 months. When you're ready to cook the frozen casserole, allow it to thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
