I really like this recipe because it's quick, easy and healthy! It took me 45 min tonight from start to finish to make it and that included time to de-tail and sauté shrimp (which I added to the rice at the end). Other additions included frozen peas, water chestnuts and canned stir fry baby corn. If you need a little kick to the flavor, just add some sriracha! Will definitely make again.
