Shrimp with Capers, Garlic, and Rice

The clean tastes of fresh lemon juice and thyme complement the saltiness of the capers in this shrimp and rice dish. Starting with peeled and deveined shrimp from the fish counter and a package of precooked rice makes this a fast and satisfying meal after a busy day.
