Oh. My. Goodness!! This was wonderful. I used TWO boxes of Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice blend as suggested by others, and added one extra clove of garlic. Will definitely be making this again...and again!

I have made this many times for tons of people and everyone goes crazy over it. I'm Italian and on Christmas Eve we make all fish. My sister and I wanted to update some of the things we make so I made this one year and now it's on of our classic Christmas Eve items. Thank you Paula for all the great food you've given us over the years. Love you p.s. I use 2 boxes of uncle ben's long grain and wild rice.

What do they mean by "1 box" of rice? how big of a box? How many cups?

I have made this receipe for my family on more than one occasion and they love it! For those who are saying it was a bit soupy, I recommend using 2 boxes of rice instead of one. At least that's what I always use and it comes out better and more "together" like a lasagna...

This was very good! I added capers, and lemon juice to the rice and cut up fresh mushrooms and cooked them with the onions.

Made this for the family tonight. It was delicious, but soupy. Would reducing the soup to 1 can make the recipe too dry?

Two different recipes for Shrimp and Wild Rice states serving 6to 8 persons. One calls for 2 # shrimp and the other for 1 # and half of the other ingredients. It seems that something is not quite right - unless you expect the 1# recipe to feed smaller people???

I made this for dinner last night. Every bit of it was gone! I will be making this time and time again. Thanks Paula. Sandra Page

It was okay. It was not what I expected. Needed more rice.

By Nikki Neal on May 12, 2011


kind of bland 1 box of rice = 12o/z to much of it.
