this was better than i expected. it was one of those dinners when you dont have much time and/or when you arent too hungry for a huge meal. i did accompany the shrimp and rice with an iceberg lettuce salad with sunflower seeds, bacon bits, croutons and french dressing and of course some bread sticks. i have to say the salad pulled the whole meal together. i also used fully cooked shrimp (to avoid overcooking) so all there was to it was to let it heat with the butter sauce. and i do recommend the red chili pepper flakes cause i honestly think that without them the shrimp might have been a little blah. the spicy kick from the red chili pepper made the shrimp taste sooo good! overall, i will be making this meal again, it was pretty tasty and i didnt have that bloated feeling afterwards. it hit the spot! thanks for sharing!!
