Recipe by Valerie Lavelle
I got this recipe from Prevention Magazine. When I took the leftovers to work the next day everyone in the luchroom was raving about the beautiful aroma and many asked for the recipe. I used frozen shrimp ring. It's low-fat so it great for any diet. I have Celiac and used rice flour for the all-purpose flour..worked great.
