this was awesome. the really special thing about this recipe is how the rice is cooked. only adjustments made were adding bell pepper and celery to the onion (trinity) and i didn't pre-cook the shrimp. i just threw the shrimp on top when i put it in the oven. the whole thing came out perfectly. will make again and again and again. thanks captain.

This really was easy & delicious, I used Kielbasa & chicken but will swap chicken for shrimp next time to see how it goes. I liked that I didn't need to worry about the rice sticking or burning. The rice was soft & moist without the guesswork. This one is a keeper.
