Shrimp and Wild Rice Casserole Recipe

In the past the only chance I have had to work with wild rice was in combination; such as in the Uncle Bens seasoning packets. When I ran into some of the pure wild rice on sale I decided to give it a try. The texture of the wild rice is quite different then the long grain rice and I thought that it was pretty good. If you use the pure version of wild rice be sure to allow enough cooking time because it does take a lot longer to cook.

There are a number of wild rice recipes I wanted to try-so the first one I picked was this Shrimp and Wild Rice Casserole adapted from Food Network.

There is not a lot of prep time in this recipe, but because of the wild rice, there is a lot of cooking time. I followed the recipe as written and the shrimp were cooked perfectly, and the combination of flavors was delicious. If you’re in the mood to try a dish that’s a little different, give this Shrimp and Wild Rice Casserole recipe a try. Enjoy
