"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."

"This recipe is simple and delicious to make. I already had 2 cups of rice from our dinner the night before. I simply followed the instructions but added the rice to the pan with the shrimp, added the parmesan cheese and a little chicken broth. Awesome! I will make this again."

"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."

"So simple, easy and fast to make! Although I didn't go the instant rice route, I made my rice in a standard rice cooker and just replaced the water with the chicken broth and let it cook the rice that way. Will definitely make this again! :)"
