Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Save time by purchasing microwavable rice, found in the freezer-section of your grocery store.
  • tip 2
    Frozen shrimp is an easy weeknight protein if you know how to handle it. Look for peeled and deveined shrimp. Thaw in a colander set inside a bowl under cold running water 10 to 15 minutes or until fully thawed. Then pat dry and cook as directed.
