Since canned shrimp was very expensive when I was growing up, this special dish always seemed like a real treat. It's still a treat today because it's delicious. Shrimp Wiggle is so satisfying, it's one-dish dinner!

Had a good flavor. I used large frozen shrimp. I may try again this time using canned shrimp. Was thinking of putting it on rice.

Wonderful, but WAY too much milk. I would at least cut it by half next time.
