You just may make memories with this yummy Lemon Garlic Shrimp, suggests Kristine DeGaetano from Brick, New Jersey. “This was the meal I cooked for my husband on our first date,” she recalls. “To this day, he still remembers that night whenever I cook it for him.” TIP: If you’re watching your sodium intake, serve over regular long grain or wild rice, rather than a mix. Tip idea: If you are watching your sodium, serve this over regular long grain or wild rice, not from a mix. From a mix, 1 cup rice is left over. We could give a suggestion for using it.
