I came up with this recipe when my husband brought home fresh shrimp. We wanted something like Jambalaya without all the work. I looked into my pantry and found these simple ingredients. This was an instant winner and very simple to prepare. It's a must try! You may substitute half of the shrimp with scallops if you like.
