How do you make yellow rice? Do you buy it like that or is it the ingredients you add to white rice?

Hi there! Check out our recipe, Yellow Rice, here: Enjoy!

I made this today and it was delicious . The seasoning were just right. I served it with yellow rice. Yum! This will be my go to recipe for shrimp.

I made this for the first time for lunch today. My husband said this was the best-tasting shrimp he has ever had, and he has eaten all kinds of shrimp in his lifetime - so have I. It is delicious and so easy to make, especially if you have your rice ready ahead of time. just minutes to make. Keep up the good work, Mr. Food and staff. I am sending this recipe to my daughters. I know they will love it.

Tried this and it was DELISH!!!

This sounds like a good one. I love shrimp and the easiest way to cook it and add the rest of the meal is a good one.
