Perfect when you don’t have much time and need a quick, healthy meal. This recipe is especially fitting for the diabetic in your family or person who can’t handle lots of spice.


  • 1 package instant brown rice or 2 cups regular cooked rice
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 large green pepper
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 lb cleaned shrimp
  • Handful of scallops (optional)
  • Seasonings to taste and Tabasco (optional)


Step 1

While cooking rice as directed on package, slice one large onion and one large green pepper.

Step 2

Sauté the onion and pepper in one tsp of oil until softened and translucent.

Step 3

Add the diced tomatoes until heated.

Step 4

Add one pound of cleaned shrimp seasoned with your favorite seasonings (garlic powder, salt and black pepper work well, add some cayenne if you want it spicy) and heat through until shrimp is pink. You can add precooked shrimp if you like to save time. Add the seasoned scallops with the shrimp and cook through.

Step 5

Add seasonings and Tabasco to taste. I add to my taste and let the guests add their own as some prefer it spicier than others. Serve over rice or noodles and a salad with tangy dressing.
