Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ

I just made this after posting - I knew it would be good because I had it marked as a keeper, but it had been so long since I made it I couldn't remember any specific details. After making it again, the only thing wrong was that I didn't make enough for my family of five! They also requested more shrimp : ) I'll be doubling the recipe in the future.....

Tasty and flavorful. I had to add extra paprika and saffron - probably doubled the amount of both. I used a long-grain rice, but wish I had reviews on other recipes which show that short-grain rice would have been better. But it was a quick and easy meal which we did enjoy.
