My spouse and I don't like shrimp, so I substituted mussels and cut so they were bite-sized. Also, used seafood broth from Kitchen Basics to short cut the boiling of the shrimp shells. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and it has turned out well every time I make it.
You can always splurge on fresh crabmeat, but we tested this dish with canned Chicken of the Sea lump crabmeat and liked the results. Shrimp shells render a quick stock to flavor the sauce. We used oven-ready lasagna noodles to save time.
