Reviews for Garlic Shrimp and Rice
"I've made this recipe many times, exactly as written, for my family. They LOVE it! It's fast, easy and delicious. Sometimes (when I'm feeling spicy) I add red pepper flakes ... it adds a bit of heat. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Next time I'd add water chestnuts, carrots,etc. I doubled the recipe and didn't have leftovers"
"I am in Japan so I had to make a few modifications such as using white rice and I cut the recipe in half as well. I am not the biggest fish fan but I have a lot of shrimp and this was a great way to use it while enjoying eating it! I can see why it is one of your son's favorite foods! :)"
