Mixed reviews, my cousin and I loved this (we had seconds and finished it off), husband didnt particularly like it, but wasnt specific on why. All I can say, well, WE liked it, made as per recipe, for me this would be a make again. Oh, one thing, I did add crushed tomatoes .. hope you'll forgive me, I just felt I would enjoy tomatoes in this .... really good, Jan, thank you, made for ZWT9, Family Picks, Pink Panthers
Basically, I love the recipe. The single reason that I'm giving 4 star's instead of 5 is that, for my taste, the spicing needs to be at the very least doubled it not tripled. It's very mild and I really loved it after a drizzle of Frank's Red Hot sauce. Having said that I have never tried Dirty Rice before and this could be the quintessential recipe and I'm way off base. I will make it again with the spice elevated. It's filling, really tasty and I loved the shrimp addition. Thanks so much Jan :D. Made for ZWT 9.
