This is a terrific recipe w/ lots of flavour anda little kick. We used a can of Rotel instead of stewed tomatoes and whole grain brown rice. Would cut the salt in half next time. Depending on the size of the shrimp, they will cook quicker than 5 minutes, so watch carefully. This dish reheats very well. Yum, yum!
I wanted to try something different. This hit the spot! I doubled the recipe and only put in 1/8tsp cayenne and did chili powder and pepper to taste because I didn't want it to be too spicy for my 4yr old. I also added mushrooms and left the bay leaf out because I didn't have it on hand. Huge success!
Very good, I was out of stewed tomatoes, so I used a can of rotel tomatoes and diced a fresh tomatoe. It turned out great.
I have made this many times. Sometimes I have used smoked sausage or kielbasa instead of ham and it is still just as delicious
This is one of my family and friends favorite recipes. I've made this many times and every time it gets rave reviews. It's easy and oh so good. I have also substituted smoked sausage for the ham and that's wonderful, too.
