This was quite nice, however the qty seemed a bit off for the rice to shrimp ratio, along with the lemon juice. The title bogged down in rice suggested that there should be more rice than shrimp, however based on my efforts tonight, I think it is a little off. I ended up doubling the rice (after changing the serves to 2 people) and even with that, found the lemon was quite strong. Overall, a nice flavour and an easy meal. Thank you for sharing.
