I love shrimp and so does my daughter.  I also love wild rice, now that I am older, I believe it is an acquired taste and it reminds me of Minnesota.  This is a dish I found in a little cookbook from “The First Christian Church” in Duncanville, Tx., from the year 1974.  I love old church and community cookbooks, they have the best home cooked recipes.

  • 2 lb. raw shrimp
  • wild rice
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1/2 lb. fresh mushrooms sliced
  • 18 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 c. sliced celery
  • 1 tsp. parsley flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. tarragon leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 3 tbsp. lemon juice

Shell and devein shrimp.  In large skillet, sauté mushrooms in melted butter for 2 minutes.  Add celery and tomatoes and sauté 1 minute longer.  Remove and push to one side.  Mix seasonings together, add shrimp and sprinkle with seasonings.  Saute shrimp, stirring, 2 minutes.  Add lemon juice, combine shrimp and vegetables.  Cover and simmer 5 minutes.  Serve over wild rice.  Serves 4-6.
