Shortcut Sweet Chili Shrimp

 This recipe for shortcut sweet chili shrimp has become a family favorite these days. It’s so easy to prepare and using a shortcut method it’s a great meal idea for weeknight. 

 

 

It’s always nice when you come up with a recipe that not only tastes great and your family loves the dish but, also is so easy to prepare that it works as a perfect busy weeknight meal idea.

The first time I made this it was served over white rice, the second, over brown rice. This time it’s been put over cauliflower rice.

We all loved it. What a nice change and for someone who has never tried cauliflower rice, it’s something you really should try out.

My husband and son didn’t even know they were not eating regular white rice. They just thought I seasoned the rice differently. 

Have you seen frozen cauliflower rice? Check your markets and grocery stores. Lots of stores sell a variety of cauliflower rice nowadays.

It’s becomes so popular over the last couple of years.

Of course you can buy a whole head of cauliflower and rice one yourself. But, with my busy and hectic schedule, I would prefer a convenient way of using this wonderful veggie.

They go on sale all the time so check your local markets and grocery stores. 

Now, getting to the sweet chili sauce, all I have to say is, this is the best shortcut way to make a saucy glaze for your shrimp or chicken recipe.

Just use a mason jar or any clean jar with a lid and it’s made. Seriously, that’s it.

Also, buying  peeled and clean frozen shrimp makes for a fast and simple recipe too.

I’m sure you’ll love making this recipe for the convenience and you are sure to love it as well.
