If there were more than 5 stars, we would give them to this superb recipe! I made a single serving for my own dinner last night and ended up having to share with 2 others... However, I am headed back to the store for more shrimp today and I'm going to make it again so I can have a whole bowl to myself. This is a winner and really reminds me of home. I especially love the spiciness in the rice. (: Made for Photo Tag. Thanks, cookiedog, for sharing this yummy, yummy recipe.
I found this recipe in The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook. This is really terrific. I made my own homemade Old Bay Spice Mix go with it, and I ate it with brown rice. Thank you for posting this terrific recipe!
