Number of Servings: 6


    Saffron Yellow Rice - 10oz.
    Canned Tomatoes (Mexican Style) - 1 can
    Cooked Shrimp - 1/2 lb.
    Lean Ground Turkey - 1/3 lb.
    Minced Garlic - 2 tsp.
    Salsa - 3 tbs.
    Olive Oil - 2 tsp.


Boil 3.5 cups of water and prepare rice as stated on package. However, I used 2 tsp of olive oil in water rather than listed margarine. While rice is simmering...

In large skillet, brown garlic and ground turkey. Add whatever seasoning you prefer. I used Old Bay.

Add cooked shrimp, canned tomatoes(undrained) and salsa. Stir together and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 10-12 min.

When rice is done, transfer to large bowl and fluff with a fork. Pour the skillet mixture over the rice and blend well.

Makes about 6 - 1 cup servings.

This recipe can easily be altered with added vegetables, different seafood, no seafood, no turkey etc.
