Ingredients

  • 1

    C long-grain white rice

  • 1

    medium onion, chopped

  • 1

    green bell pepper, chopped

  • 1

    red bell pepper, chopped

  • 6

    garlic cloves, chopped

  • 1-1/2

    C strained tomatoes (or if you can't find that, use regular canned tomato puree -- that's what I've been using)

  • 1

    tsp Cajun seasoning

  • 1/4

    tsp red pepper flakes

  • 3/4

    lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1

    tsp grated lemon zest

Directions

1. Cook the rice according to the package directions; keep warm. 2. Meanwhile, spray a large nonstick skillet with olive oil nonstick spray and stet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and peppers and cook, stirring often, until softened, 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. 3. Add the tomatoes, seasoning, pepper flakes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shrimp and simmer until just opaque in the center, about 5 minutes longer. Stir in the lemon zest. Serve with the rice.
