"Ruth Miller...

Thank you! I put off making this because in this household shrimp is rarely served but now it just may become a regular thing. So good."

"Incredibly fast with a wonderful blend of creamy, sweet and spicy flavors as well as interesting color and texture. My husband, not a shrimp fan like me, praised this dish without prompting. Give it a try for a quick family meal that is healthy, too. As we begin to face health issues, we thank you for sharing this delightful little recipe!"

"A correction to my previous comment - meant to say that the Cajun "holy trinity" used in cooking is Bell pepper, onion & celery !!"

"This is a tasty, quick recipe - BUT - to call it Cajun Shrimp & Rice is misleading - you would NOT find this recipe served anywhere in Louisiana. I'm from La and we Cajuns definitely don't use snow peas ! Cajun recipes will always use the "holy trinity" of onion, garlic and celery in sauteing."

"This is an excellent recipe but I only make it when my son, who is allergic to seafood, is not here. It's a keeper recipe though and we will be making it many more times."
