Island Shrimp

Island Shrimp With Calypso Rice

2 (8-ounce) packages frozen island lime shrimp
1 cup frozen petite peas
1/4 cup pre-diced red onions
2 tablespoons sofrito (Spanish cooking sauce)
2 cups Minute Rice (cooked as directed)

 

Place shrimp in large skillet over medium heat. Cook 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until shrimp are pink.

Meanwhile, combine peas, onions, and sofrito in skillet over medium heat until hot.  Add shrimp to sauce and stir until sauce slightly thickens.  Spoon shrimp mixture over rice and serve.

NOTE: Sofrito is a cooking sauce made from tomatoes, garlic, peppers, and spices. It is used as a flavoring ingredient in many Caribbean recipes.
