    This recipe is absolutely fantastic. I did have to cook it a little longer than 10 minutes after I added the shrimp and peas. But it was worth it. - 5/4/08

    Very Good
    I enjoyed this recipe! And I'm not even that big a fan of shrimp. =) I used ground chicken (95% lean) and brown rice, not saffron, but otherwise followed it accurately. - 5/9/11
