Ocean Springs Shrimp

I discovered this recipe years ago and it’s been a favorite since then.  Sometimes it will stay hidden for a year or two but then I find it again and my taste buds kick into overdrive.  My recipes are not organized.  I have a recipe box that’s full and then I have two drawers in the kitchen just piled with recipes.  I really need to go through them and organize them but, that’s another story for another day.  And to all of you that are organized…psshh!! ;P

This is a dish I would definitely serve to company, though I would double it.  It’s very rich and tasty but, it’s also quick and easy.  Serve with a salad, crusty bread for the buttery, cheesy goodness and a side of rice or baked potato and you’re good to go. 

Ocean Springs Shrimp

1 pound cooked, cleaned, peeled and deveined large shrimp (I bought the 31-40 count)
1/2 lb. of mushrooms, sliced
3 T. butter
1 T. flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 c. sour cream
5 T. butter, well-softened
1 t. soy sauce
1/4 c. parmesan cheese
1 t. paprika

Place shrimp in a buttered, shallow baking dish just large enough to hold them in one layer.  I used a 9 x 13.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper. 

In a skillet, saute the mushrooms in the 3 T. of butter until they are browned. (Optional: saute clove of minced garlic with mushrooms).

 Transfer to a bowl and toss the mushrooms with the flour.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.


Add to the mushrooms: sour cream, softened butter, soy and salt and pepper to taste.  Mix well.


Pour/spoon sauce over shrimp. 

Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and paprika.

Bake for 10 minutes.

Oh man, how good does that look?  Nom nom. 

Okay this picture, not so pretty.  Don’t let that fool you though, it really is a must try.

Serves: 4 or in our case 2 😉

  1. I love it! Shrimp is one of those fish that can pair with dairy and still taste delicious, this looks awesome.

    I’ve actually never seen a dish like that before! I never thought cheese and seafood would go together, but that looks good – with crusty bread on the side? Heaven!

    What a lovely dish. This is the kind of food my family loves. It would quickly disappear from my table. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  5. Really nice dish, it’s almost like a shrimp stroganoff. I bet it does taste delicious!

    I think I’ve died and gone to heaven. My poor husband just doesn’t understand what he’s missing when he refuses all shrimp dishes. Maybe I will make this for myself. It looks so good and I think the last photo does look delish.
