Outstanding! Added the tomatoes at the same time as the shrimp while cooking. Also, doubled the garlic and the cherry tomatoes from the recipe. Used broccoli alongside - excellent choice.

I was not impressed with this dish. I thought the paprika was overpowering. I will not be making this again.

I prepared this with white rice and minus the tomatoes. I also added a little butter, for flavoring. We LOVED it! We had NO leftovers! I will DEFINITELY prepare this one again.

THis was very tasty for a light dish. My hubby loved it too! I added some white wine and a few dashes of cayenne pepper, also I added the tomatoes with the shrimp. Very flavorful!

I read the recipe as saying the saute is quick, not neccessarily the whole recipe. I still consider this quick and easy, as you put the rice on and blend the shrimp, walk away, and 50 minutes later come back to take off the rice and cook everything up. But semantics aside, this is a really delicious dinner. I don't cook with paprika often, and I enjoyed the flavor of it, the pepper, and garlic. I'd like to try spinach in here, added with the tomatoes, for color and my own preference, but as-written this is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.

This was very good, especially for a healthy recipe. I made this exactly as stated (and added the tomatoes during the last minute of cooking), and it was simple, quick, and tasty - with just a touch of heat. The only thing that took some time was cooking the rice (about 35 minutes total for Uncle Ben's Original Recipe Long Grain & Wild Rice, microwaved). Also, the shrimp took a couple of minutes longer to cook than specified when I made it. Overall, I'm very pleased with this. I will definitely make this again soon.
