Spicy Shrimp with Rice

No one will doubt that "light" cooking can be tasty when you put a helping of this zippy shrimp in front of them. The seafood is seasoned just right with garlic, pepper and hot sauce. — Jeannie Klugh, Lancaster, Pennsylvania

    My husband and I love shrimp so I thought I would give this dish a try. It was good. Not too spicy for us and we were able to use our garden fresh green peppers. I ended up adding a touch of sugar to the sauce after tasting it.

    This was amazing. I used 1 1/2 lbs. frozen shrimp, peeled and deveined (21-25 per lb.) and removed the tails before cooking. I used onion powder instead of salt and also sprinkled some oregano. Wow!
