I made the seafood casserole for the first time for guest and was really looking forward to the result. Followed the recipe. It smelled delicious while cooking. Unfortunately when I served it the sauce separated. Not sure why? It was very tasty and everyone thought it was delicious but as the cook I was disappointed in the result as it was quite watery. Any hints why it separated?

This recipe is excellent. My wife does not like celery so we left that out. We did add 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. I believe that even without the cayenne pepper, the recipe is a great one and a keeper.

I wish people would review recipes as written. You are not doing anyone a favor if you deviate from what is written. Stop trying to be a smarty pants. I would rather see reviews of the recipe as written, then come back with variations of what may make it better or did make it better. There I feel better!!

We've made this twice within a month it's so good. The second time was for dinner at my son's and he asked for the recipe. We follow the recipe except for putting in extra shrimp.

I made 3 changes. Used the combo can of Cream of Mushroom & Cream of Chicken soup instead of the milk. Topped casserole with 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese. Diced 3 slices of bread & mixed that into 2-3 Tbsp. melted butter and scattered that over the cheese (instead of dry bread crumbs) before baking. Family went wild for this!!!! Instant favorite!!

This is one of my favorite go to recipes. It is wonderful as written. I have also added scallops, carrots and water chestnuts.

Made exactly as written. Our family of 4 wasn't "wowed" as many others were. An expensive meal to make, and one I likely won't make again due to the cost. Totally edible, but just not a favorite.

Awesome meal! Nice and moist and very delicious! Would make over again and maybe improvise on some of the ingredients like cream of crab soup instead of milk and maybe add cheese! So many endless possibilities! But I followed this recipe to a tee and my husband just loved it! He asked for seconds

This turns out very well. I was glad to see it on this site because I had lost my recipe that I had for many years. I think it is not an effective idea to rate a dish after you changed it. Review the recipe ONLY if you make it in its original form, otherwise you might confuse novice cooks.

This is a wonderful recipe with a few changes. Definetely sour cream instead of milk, I also used leeks instead of onions (which I sauted for just a minute) As suggested I added peas and raw red pepper instead of pimentos. Also added a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes and a little more worcestershire sauce. Topped with breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese last 15 minutes. Fortunately I live where we catch our own crab and added raw prawns which I used instead of shrimp.
