1 (3 1/2-ounce) bag boil-in-bag long-grain rice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

How to Make It
Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
While rice cooks, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add Old Bay, red pepper, and shrimp; sauté 1 minute. Remove from pan.
Add onion, green pepper, celery, and garlic to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until tender. Add oregano, thyme, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 5 minutes. Return shrimp to pan; cook 2 minutes or until shrimp are done. Serve over rice.
I thought this recipe was surprisingly good, I made several adjustments though. First I used fresh veggies and cooked them longer in order to soften. I deglazed the pan with white wine a couple of times, no more than 3 tbps. I also added Texas Pete and a little garlic salt to the sauce. Overall it was pretty good.
