Easy Shrimp Creole Recipe

I found this super-quick shrimp recipe in a magazine years ago and have changed it to suit my taste. To speed things along, I cook the rice in the microwave, using chicken broth instead of water. I’ve only had compliments whenever I’ve served it. –Jean Gauthier, Rives Junction, Michigan
