Garlic Shrimp and Rice Recipe

My son's favorite food is shrimp, so I'm always looking for quick and simple ways to make it. In this recipe, sometimes I use garlic salt instead of minced garlic cloves and salt. —Julie Trani, Chesapeake, Virginia

We don't like brown rice, so I used organic jasmani, took the suggestion on the red pepper flakes, and also added about a t of lemon juice and tossed in some sliced almonds. It was good. I'll play with it some more...

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! :)
