    Terrific Recipe! I subbed in chix broth for the clam juice, but otherwise followed the receipe exactly and served with asparagus. Quick, easy, delish and the whole family liked it. Definintly going in the weeknight rotation, but good enough for company.

    This was ok. I think the spiciness was a bit too much. May try to make again and adjust the seasoning.

    This is a delicious recipe! I made only one change: since white rice has virtually no nutritional quality, I substituted a combo of brown and wild rice, cooked it until nearly done, then proceded with the recipe. Served with crusty whole grain bread and a green salad - yummmmmm!

    This dish was quick, but it lacked flavor.

    Made this for the family, including mom in law, last night. I got some heat into the recipe but slicing up a jalapeno with the diced tomatoes rather than trying to find a can of diced tomato with jalepenos. Good stuff. Quick without appearing like it was. Served it with bread and a salad, as suggested and all liked it. :-)

    This is a very easy recipe to make. It has just the right amount of spice to it and since my husband and I love shrimp, I make this dish often. It is one of our favorites. I serve it with a salad and since the recipe calls for white wine, we have that as well. We are expecting company for dinner tomorrow and I plan to make this dish for them.

    I made this tonight for my parents and we all loved it. Very simple to make and with a fresh salad will definitely make my receipe box. I used FF/low sodium chicken broth - because I forgot the clam juice- :-(

    Easy, delicious. I didn't have instant rice, so I used quinoa which meant it had to simmer for about 15 minutes instead of standing for 5 minutes. I was afraid the shrimp might be overcooked because of this, but it wasn't, and using quinoa makes it a little healthier. I suppose couscous would work, as well.

    Not worthy of a special occasion but better than just good. I used fresh tomatoes and fresh garlic - doubled the garlic actually - some canned jalapeno and dried thyme cut back to 1 tablespoon. Perfect amount of heat for me and DH. Will definitely make this again. Nice portion size, very filling.

    This is an easy very tasty recipe. Used dry Thyme instead of fresh, 1 teaspoon. I think I will cut that down slightly the next time a make this.

    This came out pretty good, although I made some substitutions. Instead of clam juice, I used low sodium chicken broth and fresh tomatoes instead of canned. I didn't add the jalapenos, because I served this to my kids, but I added spinach. Great recipe, I will definitely make this again!

    This dish was very easy and quick. Most important.......it was delicious. Plan on making this on a regular basis.

    This was really very good. I had pre-cooked brown rice I used so I omitted about half of the liquid (the wine and the clam sauce/broth), also added mushrooms and steamed asparagus to the dish. This comes together quickly once all the ingredients are chopped up and ready to go, but since I did not have peeled and deveined shrimp, pre-chopped onions or peppers (or asparagus), the prep was time-consuming so definitely more of a weekend dish for us.
