Lacked flavor... I made this recipe according to the directions. I used pinot grigio as the white wine. Shrimp were cooked perfectly. However, the meal was not flavorful enough to satisfy my husband and my tastes. We added pepper, more garlic, and red pepper which improved the taste. One of the previous reviews mentioned adding onion. Maybe this recipe would be better if onion was added.Read More
On a quest for a new shrimp dish once a week....this recipe was a delight! I added onion and also used cilantro. The Uncle Ben's Boil in a Bag Brown rice was the perfect amount for 1 lb of shrimp to feed 2. Double for 4. Thanks!
Delicious! I substituted chicken broth for the wine and served it over linguine.
This was awesome! It was quick and easy. It tasted great. My family loved it and now when I make it I need to make a double batch to make them happy.

I made this last night with white rice. I added some grated lemon peel (after squeezing the lemon, it seems a shame to throw out the rind), chopped onion and some chopped vegies (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower) and some onion powder, along with some salt and pepper. Fabulous! Also, I didn't pay much attention to exact measurements for ingredients. It didn't seem to matter. This appears to be a very forgiving and flexible recipe. We coupled it with a Sauvignon Blanc and it was heaven!
This was delicious. I added frozen peas just because I needed a little more green. Very good. Try it you will be pleasantly surprised.
I did not care for it.
Loved this recipe! The only thing I did different was used cilantro instead of the parsily.
This made for a great new year's eve dinner, and it was so quick and easy! It's reminiscent of a favorite dish my mom used to make with feta broiled on top, but I don't think this could have been any better. Delish!
very wonderful!recipe was complete and easy!
Cook your rice in chicken broth with slivers of lemon and some med. chopped onion. It adds to over all flavor. Add a little chile flakes to give this a little zing.
I had some cooked frozen shrimp in the freezer & thought I'd do this recipe. I made rice for 2 & sauce for for 4. Two of us ate it all! Wonderful! Who ever said it's unhealthy...500 calories for dinner is just right! IThank you Almondjoy!!!
Great flavor. My entire family loved it. Very easy to make. Served with Tarragon Green Beans (recipe from this site) and it was perfect.
I found this recipe to be a little dull. However, if you add in some capers it turns out pretty good.
Simple and delicious. If you make this as a main dish, try adding some steamed veggies, i used asparagus and broccoli, and lay them under the shrimp and cover with the same sauce and it is excellent. I also used some hot sauce for a little kick which added a little something as well.
Perfect as is!
This was pretty good. I didn't have any rice so I used whole wheat couscous. I added fresh spinach and onion.
I used some of the other reviewers suggestions and added peas, red pepper flakes and substituted chicken broth for wine. This was a great easy weeknight meal.
This recipe is very easy and can be prepared in no time if you already have your brown rice cooked and your shrimp peeled and deveined. I was expecting the sauce to be a little sharp from the wine and lemon, but the flavor was mild and buttery. I think of this dish as pesco-vegetarian comfort food, probably not company-worthy but a good quick standby dish. As a bonus, it's also naturally gluten-free for my celiac daughter.
I made this tonight and it is simply delicious. The sauce is light and flavorful. I didn't use parsley and I put a little salt and some broccoli in my rice after it was cooked. The broccoli steamed in the hot rice. It was as good as any fine seafood restaurant. Yum.
This is a wonderful dish, and the only thing I could possibly say is that it is very rich, and portions go a lot further than listed unless your family are very big eaters. We ate it with the BLT salad also here at allrecipes, and my family loved the meal. This rice is definitely a recipe we will file and make again. It will also go well with angel hair pasta or another pasta like angel hair.
what is the healthy part of this recipe? The high calorie count? the high cholesterol count?
As written, this recipe came out more like soup than any of the photos! 1/2 tsp of cornstarch failed to "thicken it up" at all....! Tasty, though.
As someone just learning to cook, I found this very easy to make and the timing instructions were FANTASTIC. I always tend to over or under-cook meats and seafood, but my shrimp turned out perfect. That being said, I do think it needed some tweaking. I added salt, a lot more garlic, and I think I'll add onions next time as well.
I substituted cilantro for the parsley. I also sauteed a chopped shallot just before adding the garlic. My husband and I loved it!
This recipe was so easy and quick to make, I wasn't expecting it to be nearly as good as it was. But the garlic and lemon flavors were just perfect. I used chicken broth instead of the wine, and the brown rice was the perfect bed for the shrimp. Great recipe!
I had some shrimp and brown rice and was looking for some inspiration so I tried this recipe and it tasted better than I expected! The only change I made was I added salt.
try adding cilantro instead of parsley and it'll take it to a whole new level
SO good! Made this tonight for dinner. I doubled it but didn't have enough shrimp so I added a package of imitation crab. No white wine either so used chicken broth and instant brown rice...but yummy! Everyone loved it!
Enjoyed this shrimp recipe, simple and quick. Very good favor and like the fact that it's healthy.
OUTSTANDING! I didn't serve the brown rice, but the shrimp is truly excellent. I will double sauce and serve over pasta next time. I used sherry because I didn't have white wine and it tasted great. This is a recipe that you will want to double, because everyone will want second servings.
I thought I would love this. I love shrimp and I love brown rice and I like wine sauces. Sorry, bland. per my husband: very bland. I even added onions, green onions, cilantro. Salt, pepper, thyme, sage could not help either.
This recipe is excellent!
Simple and tasty. Great for a weeknight meal.
Good but not great. My husband and I thought that the rice/sauce ratio was a little off. The dish was a little bland b/c there wasn't enough sauce.
This recipe is excellent. I love it.
It's just shrimp with lemon juice.
This is a great recipe! I used the left over sauce and poured it over the rice, delicious!! Definitely a keeper. :)
We loved this!! So light and refreshing. The lemon is perfect. Super quick and easy for a weeknight meal. Uses easy on hand ingredients too. We will definitly add this to our rotation.
I made it without the shrimp as I was looking for a rice side dish to go with the chicken I already had for dinner. The only change I made was to add a little salt.
Pretty good, next time I will try adding capers.
made this for dinner last night. Wonderful flavor combination. I added fresh asparagus, onion and button mushrooms, because we had them from our garden and love veggies.
Quick and easy. The dish however lacks flavor. I did Increase garlic,lemon juice etc. but it still lacks a pop of flavor. A nice basic recipe and worth experimenting with. Thank You for Sharing.
this had almost no flavor. the shrimp were bland, even after I added garlic salt.
I followed directions! My suggestionis follow the directions on the box to cook the rice.
Eh, it's a good BASE recipe...but really needed sprucing up. I sauteed a white onion in the OO and butter. I also added frozen peas and carrots, a little ginger, salt, pepper, and probably twice as much lemon juice as was called for and used chicken broth instead of white wine. Even after all that, it still is lacking something. But it's still good. Thanks for the idea!
When I have time I love to be creative in the kitchen but those nights when I come home after a hard day I want something quick and easy but delicious, too. This fits the bill perfectly! I serve it along with fresh green beans or broiled asparagus.
I did not care for this. Way too lemony. I'll eat the leftovers because I don't like to waste food, but I'll never make it again.
mmmmm Good. Made a few additions. Added green onion. Also used a tsp of lemon grass and used cilantro and Vietnamese coriander in place or parsley. The sauce was wonderful and the shrimp tender and juicy.
The whole family enjoyed this. I sauteed some shallots and celery with the garlic, and didn't add cornstarch. It was wonderful and we'll have it again.
This was okay. I will say the mixture of the white wine and lemon juice was a bit tart and different. I added parmesan cheese and extra parsley to the finished product and this helped balance the flavors a lot.
Perfect! To o many shrimp recipes have so much spice that the delicate flavor of the shrimp gets lost. This one was just right, cooked up beautifully, and made a nice presentation.
What a great simple and healthy dish...Even my picky boyfriend who is not a big fan of shrimp or eating healthy enjoyed it! Served it with green beans...will definitely make again.
simple, healthy, and delicious! made it with brown rice and had some salad on the side, and it totally hit the spot. it was exactly what i had been craving!
loved it used 4 cloves of garlic and white rice. this is one thats being printed and added to my recipe book.
This is good basic recipe. I used 2 cups of chicken broth rather than 1/2 c. wine, because we like it saucier. I added 2 more cloves of garlic, used only 1 tbsp of olive oil and added some bell peppers because I had some that needed to be used. I served it with crushed red pepper for the adults and everyone enjoyed it. It has a very lemony flavor. Very good.
This was very simple to make, but I thought it was pretty boring. Wouldn't make it again.
Heavenly! I have made this three times now. I used cooked shrimp. To prevent the shrimp from becoming tough, I added them at the very end after the cornstarch had been added and the sauce cooked to the desired thickness. Then I just cooked long enough to make sure the dish was heated throughout. This dish is a favorite at our house.
Very good recipe, will make it again.
If you like Chicken French you'll love this! I love lemon dishes and this was perfect. I added green onions when I added the garlic (extra garlic), and more wine and lemon juice to make more of a sauce. I also used Uncle Bens long grain wild rice and served it with a side of asparagus. It was delicious and easy!
This recipe turned out great! I didn't have all the ingredients so I had to improvise a bit but it still tasted really good, I already wish I had more.
Excellent! I served it as a side dish with mahi and it was perfect! Thank you! YUM!!
Delicious! I added crushed red pepper, nixed the white wine and cornstarch, and it came out really well! I served mine over pasta.
I followed the recipe exactly. It was very light and very yummy. I think the trick is using fresh parsley or cilantro.
Very good. The wine was a little overwhelming, so next time I would use less. But, overall, very light and yummy.
This was absolutely scrumptious! And quick! I used precooked shrimp because that's was what I had on hand, and that made it even quicker. I also substituted cilantro for parsley. Both my husband and I loved it. Thanks for this recipe - it is a keeper in our household as far as we are concerned.
Real good, little effort for a good meal.
I didn't have parsley, so I used basil. To zip it up, I also added cracked red pepper and a little more lime (instead of lemon) and more garlic ... perfect!!!
Delicious, quick, easy. Always have the ingredients on hand. What more could be wanted in a recipe?!
Too buttery for my taste, not enough lemon and way too much parsley. I will try it again but will make it with the modifications above and with some of the mods suggested here by others. I would also suggest using small or medium shrimp too.
Sorry...tried this for dinner this evening...Pretty Boring...
I really liked this recipe. However, my family thought it was too lemony. It had a very nice light feel and I really liked the lemon tang. I added peas, but do not think that changed the overall flavor.
Loved this! Just started eating gluten-free and this hit the spot. May play with some of the ingredients next time to change it up a bit. Fabulous!
I enjoyed this dish and love brown rice. I felt it was light and flavorful. Thank you!
It was super quick and easy. I did change and omit a few things. I used moscato wine, didn't use the parsley, added Parmesan cheese, and served over fettuccine noodles. Whole family loved it!!!
Excellent! This dish is so easy and simple, perfect for a weeknight meal. The only thing missing is some salt and pepper. I use unsalted butter and added 1/2 tsp. kosher salt and 1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper. I always make my brown rice in the oven since I have better luck with that than the stovetop. Served with some sugar snap peas for a complete meal.
you can't go wrong with this one. i make this at least once a week. each time i do, i alter it a bit to my liking. (either i add more chicken broth to make the recipe more "soupy" and sometimes, i just add a bit of baking soda to make it creamier). good stuff.
Great meal. My wife picked it out as something to try. It was super easy to make and was a hit with company. There is plenty of room to play with this recipe so it doesn't have to be the same every time. We are going to try this with chicken soon.
Not bad! I do agree with others that it needs a little bit more flavor but very recipe to make. Served withsteamed broccoli
I am going to try this but will add peas. Like how straight forward and easy this recipe is.
Delish! Followed the recipe, except used half wine and half chicken broth. Used half parsley and half cilantro, dried. Sautéed some chopped onion and yellow pepper, before adding the garlic. Served over jasmine rice cooked with chicken broth. The shrimp were perfect, the sauce was yummy. Will make this again.
This turned out to be an alright dish. I didn't use brown rice because I can't get passed the taste or the texture. Used white rice and also added soy sauce, cilantro and garlic in the marinade for the shrimp.
I made the Lemon Shrimp with Lime juice. It was delicious. I will make it again.
used onions an cilantro
I made this recipe as written- I loved it and will make again and again! Simply delicious
It was the best and I will be making it again
Would do this again-simple but tasty
This is a great way to cook shrimps. I served this over white rice cooked in chicken broth and added green onions and more garlic to it. Absolutely delicious!
This recipe is very simple and quick! I did add some seasoning (garlic salt, ground pepper) because it was a little blah without it. I also used jasmine rice. Other than that, I followed the recipe and it was great. I will definitely make it again!
A really nice dish It would have been perfect if I had of used real lemon juice
I sautéed some strips of red bell pepper and onion. Added some minced garlic and dill. My husband doesn't like brown rice so used white. It was tasty, simple and quick. Could probably use more lemon juice and some heat--red pepper flakes or cayenne. I'd make it again.
My version of your recipe came out great. I cooked the rice in vegetable broth, seasoned with salt free "Spike". I substituted the butter and olive oil for grapeseed oil. Used sweet Marsala wine rather than white. Garnished with fresh herbs from garden, parsley, cilantro, basil and rosemary. And did not thicken the sauce. It was very good.
it did lack the flavor that to I'm used to.
Great recipe. I followed the very easy directions. The only thing I would add is some Lemon Zest!
Such a great recipe! My husband loved it and even my picky toddler! Kept to the recipe but like others suggested using chicken broth, and added some veggies! Delicious, definitely will be making this again soon!
This is a tasty dish. I made a few tweaks as I cook for one. Omitted the cornstarch as there was not enough liquid for a sauce; added a seeded, minced calabrian chili pepper for a little heat along with chopped parsley to the pan before adding the shrimp. After removing the shrimp from the pan, I put the rice in the pan to collect leftover bits and reheat the rice. I really enjoyed this shrimp and rice meal and will definitely be making it again. Thanks Almondjoy :)
I added some Old Bay seasoning to it and also some Table Blend Mrs. Dash gave it a nice flavor.
This was a very quick and tasty dish. I used water for the the wine and increased the lemon juice. I also added tony charere top enhance the flavor. I substituted flour for the cornstarch.
I tried this tonite, and OMG!!!! It was WONDERFULLY YUMMY!! I followed the directions but took heed on a couple reviewers...I also like a more soupy sauce, so I added 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth (used that instead of the wine). I had to stop eating so I could have seconds tomorrow! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe...it is a DEFINITE keeper!! :)
