Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok, I really altered this, but used the recipe as a base. Ok, I really altered this, but used the recipe as a base. I took a pound of medium shrimp (more per plate.), real rice, an 8 oz tub of artichoke & spinach cream cheese, 2 cups of frozen spinach, a jar of marinated artichoke hearts, a jar of marinated artichoke bottoms, some sliced green onions, to taste, and the juice of a lemon. Salt and pepper, of course. I just cooked the rice as I prepared the rest of it, melting the cream cheese first, with a few tablespoons of chicken broth, then adding the artichoke pieces, then the spinach, then the juice of the lemon, and finally the shrimp and green onion. I added some garlic and onion powder and some salt and pepper (white pepper, to keep the sauce from turning funny shades), and mixed the rice in at the end. Very good dinner, got lots of praise from the fam.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was Yummy! It was Yummy! But here's what I did different.... added a chicken bouillon cube, used brown rice, threw in some red and yellow peppers, sauteed the shrimp in garlic, white wine and fresh lemon juice, used lowfat chive cream cheese and topped it with fresh chives.. I never follow recipes exactly as they're written, if you do, that's when stuff comes out boring and tasteless. This recipe was very good and both my husband and I gobbled it up.

We used someone elses advice from a previous rating and used the chive cream cheese instead of plain-this was a definite help in giving it flavor. My husband is allergic to shrimp so I used the chicken shortcuts instead. He really liked it. Since the chicken is already cooked I just heated it in the microwave while I was making the other ingredients on the stove. Easy and delicious.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was BLAND. This was BLAND. Except for adding garlic to the shrimp as they sauteed, I followed the recipe exactly. There was no flavor to it whatsoever. My kids picked out the shrimp and the broccoli because they said the rice was yucky. I was sorely disappointed by the taste. I wouldn't make this again without some *major* doctoring - more garlic, less cream cheese, maybe cayenne for kick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was great! This was great! My 6 year old and 3 year old ate it. I added 1 Tbsp. of butter with the oil to make it richer. I also added 2 cloves of garlic, the zest of 1 lemon and the juice of one lemon when cooking the shrimp. It added so much flavor. I also added a bit more chicken stock like the previous person posted. We will defenitely have this meal again.

I read the comments about this one being bland before making it, and decided to go with some of the suggestions I had read. I added an extra cup of broth, and used 4 pieces of already cooked bacon. Very Tasty! I will definatly make this one again, though I may use chicken instead since shrimp is so expensive!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe was VERY easy to make. This recipe was VERY easy to make. I tweaked it a little by using flavored cream cheese (chive and onion) instead of the regular one. It added just a little kick that some of the prior folks on the rating site said was missing. I will definitely make this one again, and again.
