Save your time making this quick and delicious Rice with Balsamic Onions and Shrimp.
Last post I shared with you guys my easy and quick recipe How to make fluffy rice. 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.
So, if you are very busy on your weekend, doing fun activities with your family, I just recommend you add this recipe on your book. You and all your family will enjoy the layers of flavor in here and you won’t waste your precious time cooking for hours on your weekend.
