This delectable shrimp dish is filled with color and taste that makes it vanish fast. Our family of four can't get enough of it. Bacon adds crispness and a hint of heartiness. Consider it when you need a different main dish or brunch item. —Sandra Thompson, White Hall, Arkansas

"This recipe was easy! It's one of our favorite meals! We decided to omit the bacon and add just a touch of soy sauce to the mixture. It is also great topped with some chopped green onions"

"I really liked this. I used the California blend vegetables. I don't like shelling the shrimp, so I thought next time I might buy the already cooked shrimp. I buy the shrimp in the freezer section and divide up what I need for individual meals. If you have a family to feed this would not work. But because it is just me and my husband it is the easiest way."

"Can this be made with frozen shrimp? I haven't made this yet, but I needed to rate it in order to submit a question. I'll pre-cook and use brown rice, and I'll also add one finely minced clove of garlic. I'll also sprinkle some fresh & finely chopped chives over the completed dish. So, can I make this with frozen shrimp?"

"I thought this would be too bland, but it's really very good! I paired it with store-bought spring rolls for a fast dinner."
