Smoked Oyster Shrimp (or Shrimp Dinner…with Cream)

This post is a continuation from a recent post “Here’s something to blog about, Aunt Deb…”

To recap, I received some delicious looking pictures from one of the favorite nephews with instructions that I should blog about a creative recipe that his dad (the BiL) had created.  But, I did not receive a recipe.  After I pointed this out to said nephew and BiL, I received this email:

This is just a rough draft. You will probably get a ‘revised edition’. The name is in the draft. Flexible recipe.

Why am I Crazy Dog? Can I be something else?

OK–I thought Crazy Dog was one of your screen names….What would you suggest?

SOS (Smoked Oyster Shrimp) Noodles

Formerly entitled Shrimp Dinner…with Cream

Rough Draft


  • 2 c. chopped kale
  • 3/4 c. chopped onions
  • 8 oz. mushrooms
  • 3-6 oz. smoked oysters (depending on your taste)
  • 12 oz. raw shrimp, peeled
  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1/4 c. flour
  • pasta of choice


Regarding the oysters: UNDRAINED! Save the juice!   (I’m also assuming there is some cream in here somewhere.)

Or, more specific “Get a bowl, dump in noodles…serve.”

I am still awaiting more instructions.  🙂  I am wondering about cream as an ingredient as well.

(Also, I am curious if the BiL realizes his SOS reference here.  Knowing him, he probably does…)


I absolutely have the best family (and most hilarious family)!



I finally got a revised addition of the recipe from my sister, Crazy Dog’s mom.

“Ok, here’s a more coherent version of SOS Pasta.

SOS (Smoked Oyster Shrimp) Pasta

2 c. chopped kale
1/2 c. finely diced onions (can also use shallots)
8 oz. mushrooms, chopped
1 t. salt
3 oz can smoked oysters, chopped (reserve liquid)
12 oz. raw shrimp, peeled
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1/4 -1/2 c. olive oil
1/4 c. flour
¾ cup cream
1 cup milk
pasta of choice

Saute onion, mushrooms, garlic and kale in olive oil and salt.  When soft, stir in flour and stir well.  Add cream, milk and liquid from oysters.  Bring to boil to thicken.  Add shrimp and cook until pink.  Serve over pasta.”
