When your stove konks out and you only have a microwave to cook with you get inventive. You can make amazing meals with your micro, it is another complete stove at your fingertips. So I actually use my microwave alot anyhow so this recipe fit in well.
I made the rice first (in the micro), set aside, defrosted the shrimp (in the micro), started the onions and butter (in the micro) while I peeled the shrimp. Mixed everything straight into the casserole, including the shrimp and cooked on medium/high, stirring occasionally for about 10 min. (Micro's differ in strength so you will have to check). I did find you need to be careful on how thick the sauce gets.
A 2 dish meal! One casserole for the rice, one for the shrimp. Used a paper plate/towel to defrost the shrimp.
How to defrost shrmp in the micro. Arrange on plate with tails all towards the centre. Micro using the 'muffin' setting- usually about 10 sec. on a very low strength, keep you eye on the so they don't cook, turn plate, zap again - peel. Of course running under cold water works well too but aggravates my arthritic hands. Love my micro! Thanks Aimee!
