Canned hominy versus dried eliminates long prep time taking the about 10-hour effort of reconstituting dried hominy to the 10 seconds or so it takes to open a can.

Tips

Find canned or dried hominy in large supermarkets. You will need to reconstitute dried before using: In a 3-quart pot cover 1 cup dry hominy with 2 inches of water. Cover and let stand overnight. Drain, add fresh water, and bring to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer 1 1/2 hours or until tender. Drain before using.

This is a very tasty and quick meal to make. The changes I made were few. I had 11 ounces of shrimp, instead of a pound and I only put in 2 cups of water. I didn't want it to be overly soupy. I did not have fresh oregano, so I substituted dried oregano and fresh parsley for that visual pop of green. The nice surprise was the broth is excellent. Very good meal. Better than I expected!!

I love all the ingredients in this stew, so I was hopeful. However, after depending on 45 years of great recipes from bh&g, this was a sure miss! I know hominy is difficult but there was absolutely no flavor depth at all. Sorry, bh&g.
