I made this a while back and I think this turned out nicely for creating the recipes off the top of my head. The shrimp reminds me of the garlic-buttery shrimp scampi at Red Lobster. The rice is mildly seasoned, good either as a bed for the shrimp or on its own.
Spiced Shrimp on Seasoned Rice
1 cup converted (parboiled) rice
2-1/2 cups water
1/2 packet Italian salad dressing mix (such as Good Seasons)
Stir all ingredients together. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
1/4 cup butter
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 to 1 teaspoon granulated garlic (dry powder)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Cavender's Greek Seasoning
3/4 pound shrimp (I used 51-60 size), peeled and deveined
Melt butter and olive oil in skillet or saucepan over medium heat. Stir in garlic and Greek seasoning. When oil is hot, add shrimp. Cook and stir just until shrimp are pink and cooked through. Serve over seasoned rice.
Makes 2 servings.
