Quick Meal with Success® Rice: Cajun Shrimp & Rice {Recipe} #SuccessRice #ad

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Success® Rice.

I am actually starting to enjoy cooking for my family when the preparation is relatively quick and easy.  Since Kenzie enjoys shrimp and rice, I wanted to introduce to her palate a little bit of heat with a Cajun recipe from my coworker who makes it often for her boyfriend.  I picked up some Success® Basmati Rice to change up our rice routine and it was a breeze to make.  It can be made both in the microwave or on top of the range but I opted for the range option.

Just pour 1 quart of water into a medium saucepan and submerge 1 bag of rice.  Bring the water to a boil and boil uncovered for about 8-10 minutes.  Immediately remove the bag and drain  Tear the bag at notch and it's ready.  How easy is that - no mess, no measure and ready to eat in 10 minutes
Cajun Shrimp & Rice Recipe

1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3-5 cloves chopped garlic
2 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 lb shrimp, peeled with tail on
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 bunch green onion, chopped
1 cup frozen peas
3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/3 cup chicken stock
Juice of half a lemon
3-4 cups cooked rice


Add Cajun seasoning to the shrimp and let it sit in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes to marinate.  Heat the butter, olive oil and garlic in a skillet on medium heat.  

Add shrimp, season with salt and pepper and cook for about 1-2 minutes.

Add tomatoes, green onion and peas and cook for 1-2 minutes. 

Add rice and chicken stock.  Cook rice and shrimp until fully cooked - about 3-4 minutes. 

Garnish with lemon juice and parsley. 

The Success® Basmati Rice is an aromatic, long grain rice that stays separate and fluffy when cooked.  This is atypical of our traditional rice but was nonetheless delicious in this recipe and Kenzie enjoyed herself.  I even gave some to my inlaws and my mother-in-law has now declared Success® Rice the perfect companion to our BBQ's haha.     

I also cooked up the Success® Brown Rice as a side to a dinner of ribs and it was ready in a flash plus it provided a nice, nutty taste that went well with dinner.             

With 4 varieties available including: Success® Whole Grain Brown Rice and Success® White Rice, and globally-inspired aromatic varieties of Success® Rice, including fragrant Thai Jasmine or Basmati Rice, there's a variety everyone in your family will love.  Try your own twist on one of your favorite recipes by swapping an aromatic variety into some of your go-to rice dishes.  To accommodate various households, Success® Whole Grain Brown Rice and Success® White Rice comes in two different sizes - 14 oz. or 32 oz.
