Feel free to adjust any of the ingredients to your liking, personally I felt like there was a bit too much milk and mayo listed in the ingredient list, so I just halved these ingredients and it tasted better than ever!

This recipe is the definition of an easy bake, with only 10 minutes of prep time, you’ll have time to sit back and relax whilst it’s cooking.
The creaminess of the alfredo sauce goes perfectly with the shrimp and chopped broccoli and to top it off, grated parmesan cheese is added to the top to give it a deliciously cheesy kick.

What Type Of Shrimp Should I Use?

Since shrimp cooks mighty fast and you’ll be baking it in a casserole, it can become overcooked quite quickly.
Can I Freeze A Shrimp Casserole?
In most cases yes, make sure to refer to the individual recipe to know for sure, but casseroles that contain any seafood must be completely cooked before freezing.
