I found this wonderful shrimp recipe on USA Rice Federation website and we just love it. Though the recipe calls for Feta with basil and tomato..we preferred the plain.

I left out the raisins and it was still really good! We all loved it here. Used FF feta to cut down on the fat and it worked out great!

I and my family love this recipe. We are not big spinach eaters but this was tasty and wonderful. Only change i made was to use broken shrimp and scallops to make it a wonderful fish entree. I also preferred the plain feta and used the lowfat one to reduce the fat even more. Regular on monthly plan
