This is a recipe I made when my husband and I operated our shrimp boat in Port Aransas, Texas. The recipe came from the Sea Grant College Program at Texas A&M University. It was always a hit when I served it. Also, it is much better if you can obtain fresh shrimp for this recipe.


1 lb. raw texas shrimp; Peeled and deveined
1 cup Sour cream
1/2 cup Onion; finely chopped
1/4 cup Margarine or butter
1 6-oz can Mushrooms
1 tablespoon Flour
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 dash cayenne pepper
1/2 cups Rice; cooked

Original recipe makes 4



Saute shrimp and onion in margarine for 10 minutes or until shrimp are tender. (Watch carefully as shrimp cook quickly and overcooking is about the only way to go wrong in preparing a shrimp dish. As soon as they turn pink, they are ready.) Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes more. Sprinkle in flour, salt, and pepper. Stir in sour cream and cook gently for 10 minutes, NOT allowing mixture to boil. Serve over rice. Makes 4-6 servings.

I actually would make this again, but because my husband did not like it I probably won't. I personally thought it was great.

This is the first sour cream recipe I have found for shrimp. I have to use frozen shrimp but it is still delicious. My husband and I love shrimp and this is probably the best dish I have ever made with it. Thanks for sharing.
