Dad’s Red Beans and rice started life as a version of Louisiana Style Red Beans and Rice. This is a variation that comes together much quicker than you might find in the Big Easy while using many of the main flavours. I use it as a side for things like roasts, Barbeque or Tex Mex items like tacos or quesadillas.
To use my Rice Cooker I just spray the bowl with some olive oil, add rinsed rice and a choice liquid and turn it on. It reliably cooks the rice while I attend to other things in the kitchen. It’s usually ready in 15 to 20 minutes and cooked to perfection.
Blackened Shrimp Bowls are a fully self-contained dinner choice. They provide everything in a single bowl and make it really easy to prepare just enough for however many people will be sitting down to dinner. Chicken, beef, shrimp, all make excellent protein bases for a delicious bowl. I think they’re a great choice!
