I did the prep and inside cooking while my husband manned the grill.
We loved the shrimp! The sauce was excellent. Instead of using lite mayo, I subbed it for Greek yogurt. I'm not a fan of mayo, plus it lowered the calories a little bit. Anyway, I just wish I would have made more shrimp. Can't wait to have that again!
The rice was good, but it didn't knock my socks off. I think next time I would cook the rice in chicken broth for some added flavor. I also think I didn't use enough garlic. Either way, it wasn't as savory as I was expecting. I added some extra low-sodium soy sauce and that helped, as well as a spoonful of Sriracha sauce. It was good, but not as good as I wanted it to be. I'll have to play around with this recipe a little more! My husband really liked it, so maybe I'm just being too picky.
Without further ado...
