Cajun Blackened Shrimp with Brown Rice
We’re just a couple of days away from the New Year! 2015 has been a super busy year for me, and I don’t expect to slow down any time soon in 2016. One of my main goals for the New Year is to streamline my “to do list.” One way I plan to accomplish that is by creating more quick and healthy meals for my family. I can spend less time cooking in the kitchen, plus simultaneously not have to sacrifice any delicious food.
My family eats a lot of rice! We have it almost daily at dinner time. I make a lot of ethnic inspired dishes, and most of the recipes call for rice to accompany it. In my search to create nutritious meals faster, I’m excited to find that Success® Rice comes in 4 different varieties. Success® Jasmine Rice and Success® Basmati Rice are perfect to go with the Asian and Indian themed meals I create. Success® Whole Grain Brown Rice and Success® White Rice will satisfy a variety of palates….even if you have picky eaters!
This specific recipe calls for Success® Whole Grain Brown Rice. I make a large amount of rice since we are a family of five and I have growing boys that enjoy going back for seconds. One of my biggest gripes with making brown rice is that it takes so long to finish. I want my family to get the health benefits of the grain, but I don’t have an hour or more to cook it. Success® Rice actually makes cooking brown rice really easy and it’s done in just 10 minutes, so I can get dinner on the table faster.
