Shrimp casserole

Carina Ullberg


This is called "Norwegian casserole" here with us. I did not find Norway in the list so I chose my own country, Sweden.

Take extra curry (or use a strong curry) and maybe cayenne pepper if you like hot food. Otherwise use a bit cautious. Too much kills the flavor of the prawns.

It's easy to do a lot of this, it's just to increase one or more ingredients. Be a little careful with bananas, can get to sweet. To get a little more sting in the course, one can  add green peppers. Less sweet than red and yellow.

Use your imagination and vary according to your own preferences.

How to Make Shrimp casserole


  • 1Are your shrimp unpeeled? Start by peeling them.
    Are your shrimp frozen? Thaw them and let them dry for a while on paper towel.
  • 2Put the rice to boil.
  • 3Chop the onion and cut the mushrooms into shrimp size pieces. Brown the onion and mushrooms. Let the curry powder brown too, it will bring forward the flavours.
  • 4Chop everything into size almost equal the shrimp.

    Add everything except the shrimp and mussels in a large saucepan. Season with salt, black pepper and the paprika powder. Let all things be warm and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until it gets really hot.

    2-3 minutes before serving, add the prawns and mussels, and heat it up.

    Taste and season with spices and fill up with more cream if it is too dry.
  • 5Serve with boiled rice and a nice bowl of mixed vegetables.
  • 6This is what paprika / pepper looks like - for me ;)
