Great Shrimp & Rice Recipe -- And a Great Price

I cooked up a delicious and nutritious meal last night, thanks to my bargain shopping and a recipe I clipped from the Sunday newspaper. (You'll find it in the coupon insert -- don't remember if it was RedPlum or SmartSource, though.)

My hubby Bruce, proclaimed: "We're going to have to make this again"
This was our menu:

Garlic & Lime Shrimp (using shrimp I bought half-price at Food Lion a few weeks ago and froze)
Spanish Rice (Knorr Fiesta Sides, purchased on sale and stockpiled)
Corn on the Cob (Purchased on sale at Harris Teeter for 25 cents an ear)

Not counting some staples we had on hand -- olive oil, garlic, butter and hot sauce -- I'd say our entire meal cost about $10. And we had leftovers, though knowing Bruce they might not last through the night. (When he has a snack, it's usually a plateful of whatever we had for dinner.)

Here's the recipe for Garlic & Lime Shrimp with Spanish Rice, thanks to the folks at Knorr.


  1. No, I didn't eat the leftovers last night. But I did take them for lunch today!

  2. Thanks so much for posting the link to this recipe. I put aside the newspaper it was in, meaning to cut the recipe out later - my husband efficiently scooped up the paper for recycling! Can't wait to try it.
