My house is being taken over with old magazines so I am trying to post some recipes I want to keep. This one sounds quick and very good. It comes from Everyday Food.

This made us a very nice meal. I used carrots instead of bell peppers as that is what I had on hand. I also sprinkled the shrimp with cajun seasoning. Will be making again. Thanks for posting.
