Helpful hints

  • To make the assembly of the meal easy and fast, get all the ingredients ready before you start cooking.
  • Frozen chopped onion and green pepper can be used in place of fresh vegetables.
  • Canned mushrooms are not a good choice due to high sodium content.
  • Adjust the red pepper flakes to your own tolerance for heat.
  • Do not overcook the shrimp, as it will be dry and tasteless.
