This is a Paula Deen recipe and it is, of course, amazing! I was surprised how easy it was! She served it over rice on her show so I did the same. I just used Minute white rice. The prep time will really depend on if your shrimp is already peeled and deveined. It really doesnt' take that long to do it yourself and the shrimp is usually cheaper that way. This truly was simple and delicios! Hope you enjoy it!
