Shrimp Bowl



I had some thawed shrimp that we didnt have time to make over the weekend in the refrigerator; I hate waste so I decided to cook some up for my dinner. My husband frequently travels during the week so it is sometimes a challenge to actually MAKE and EAT something! I came up with this speedy dish and I just had to write it down--even if only for me!
