Reviews for Lemon Shrimp with Parmesan Rice
"Other than using basmati rice, instead of instant, I made this exactly as written. I am a ship's chief cook, and I ran out of it halfway through the meal, with plenty of disappointed sailors. It is now a keeper in my seafood rotation."
"Great! Quick delicious dinner. I used Jasmine rice and skipped the cheese. Served with saut?ed veggies and a salad."
"Delicious! We really enjoyed this dish. I didn't have green onions so I used white onion. I also used brown jasmine rice. Very yummy!"
"Delicious and simple. My husband and picky daughter loved it. I made it exactly as stated and it came out perfectly. I served it with slices of garlic bread and steamed spinach."

"Yum! Used long grain rice & less parmesan- my teen went crazy with it."
"I have made this recipe twice and we really liked it although I did decrease the cheese to 1/4 c. and added chopped broccoli one time and fresh sugar peas the next. Both were excellent."
