It is pouring rain.  Think water, think things that live in water, think shrimp!  Or so it goes for me.

Creamy Shrimp and Rice

2 servings of cooked rice (I love Jasmine Brown Rice but be daring…choose your rice with abandon)

2 ounces cream cheese

1/2 tsp minced garlic

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp minced onion

2 cups of zucchini, peeled and shredded (note:  I never peel it.  Why on earth would you? Why take an easy recipe and make it hard?)

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/2 pound small/medium shrimp

Melt butter in a frying pan.  Add onion and cook until clear but not browned.  Add garlic and zucchini and cook for 2 minutes.  Cut cream cheese into small pieces and add to pan, stirring constantly.  Add parmesan cheese.  Add shrimp and cook til opaque.  Serve over rice.  Delicious!
