WHAT OTHER READERS SAY ABOUT THIS SHRIMP AND RICE RECIPE :

“This over rice is amazing and reheats beautifully. Great for meal prep. Even if you don’t have all the spices just throw in some garlic, paprika or Cajun or whatever, salt and pepper, it will still taste good! I can’t wait to make this again, I will dice everything slightly smaller next time
