Last post I shared with you guys my easy and quick recipe How to make fluffy rice (check out that post and my fluffy quinoa as well!). When I finished making the fluffy rice, it was about lunch time on Sunday and I decided to make some balsamic onions with shrimp to serve along with my fluffy rice. I love making balsamic onions because it always adds lot of flavor to any dish and for some reason I just think the balsamic onions with polenta or rice combine together perfectly.
