Jan 18, 2019A wonderful break after all of the holiday food! This was delicious and everyone really liked it! I did use one and a half pounds of shrimp in mine and think next time I make it I will add some zuchinni noodles! Great recipe!

This was really good, didn't have minute rice so I made it with regular rice and my Parmesan was the packaged refrigerator mix of Parmesan and Romano. I will definitely make this again!

Good recipe next time I will use regular rice though as I think it is worth the extra time.

Recipe looked so good had to try, even though I had to make multiple substitutions: jasmine rice, subbed red onion, no lemon juice, no parsley, subbed celery and artichoke hearts. Served with sourdough bread. Turned out great, but can't wait to try the original recipe!

I made this recipe tonight. This is definitely a keeper. My husband is still talking about how good it tasted and it's good for you especially with the calories. Very very good, I give it an A .

This is a great summer dinner! Very light. I've done it as written and tonight I made it with lime instead of lemon. Still great! I usually cut it in half for just my husband and I. Quick and delicious dinner. I will definitely make this again.

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.
