I love macaroni and cheese! The cheesier the better – at least for me. Throw in shrimp or other seafood (crab meat or lobster) and oh yes, indeed. While we were on our family vacation we had a late dinner at Bubba Gump’s on the City Walk outside of the Universal Orlando entrance. I’m so glad we chose to eat there. Only I should have ordered two Shrimp Mac & Cheese dinners, as my daughter wanted to try it and was soon spooning it into her mouth as well. She’s lucky I love her [kidding]. Right then and there we both were like: “let’s make this when we get home”! You don’t have to twist my arm. So here’s what we came up with and gracious was it ever good!
Remember, you can use your favorite cheeses; you don’t have to stick to what I chose to use. That’s what I did. I put in some of my favorite and easy to melt cheeses but I was also trying to capture that Bubba Gump taste. We both felt I did a bang up job and my tummy agreed. Hers too. I hope you enjoy it if you decide to make it. This was our dinner – nothing else as it’s filling and a pleasure to eat. ENJOY!
*You can switch out the shrimp for lobster, crab or other seafood. Or you can divide them up and use a couple/few together for a seafood mac & cheese. I wanted to do mine with shrimp and lobster but was not successful in finding the lobster or lobster tails I wanted. Next time.*
