5 Stars, we loved the utter simplicity as part of our meal with Hello Vodka Prawns #287004 and white rice, we really love veggies and don't need much adornment. I chose about 2 cups each of sliced sweet onion, sliced button mushrooms, frozen green beans (the last steamed to avoid adding extra water). Due to lack of space in the pan, I first sauteed garlic, then sliced onion, then removed onion from pan to saute mushroom slices. I then added back sauteed onions and steamed green beans, and tossed, and covered until shrimp dish was done. I reheated for about 1 minute just before serving veggies on top of white rice, and then served shrimp on top. DH voted this as a meal to have in our regular rotation. Made for Sept 2008 Pick-a-Chef.
