  1. You will need a large skillet. Saute' chopped onion ( I use a bag of regular frozen onions), and mushrooms in butter. Add garlic salt to taste.
  2. Add in thawed and rinsed tails & Shrimp. Season with Tony's and pepper.
  3. Add soup, cream style corn, half and half, cream cheese, and the roll of garlic cheese. Mix and stir all together until heated and blended well.
  4. Note: This is great for cold days. You can serve over rice with garlic bread. Or just put it in a bread bowl! It also freezes well.
