Looking for a seafood casserole that tastes gourmet? Try this one. The Cajun flavor comes through the cheese topping—and the confetti of green onions and red peppers makes it pretty enough for a party.—Emory Doty, Jasper, GA


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pounds uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 pound medium fresh mushrooms, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons butter
