Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 15


  • 8 to 10 medium skin on, sliced 1/4-inch thick red new potatoes
  • 1/2 cup hot milk
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup cooked and chopped shrimp
  • 1 teaspoon paprika


Preheat oven to 375 °F.

Cook potatoes in boiling water for 15 minutes or until fork-tender in a medium pot. Mash potatoes in a mixing bowl. Add hot milk, butter, sour cream, and salt and pepper, to taste. With electric mixer, beat until moderately smooth. Don’t over beat them, a few lumps are nice. Add shrimp. Whip until mixed. Adjust thickness by adding more milk if desired. Stir in paprika for flavor and color. Reheat in oven, if needed.
