I got home real late and everyone still needed to be fed so didn't have time to marinate anything. I basically threw everything into our pressure cooker (ok, put in the rice the last half hour, put the shrimp in for only the last 5 mins.) and it came out great! I skipped the capers since they're iffy with my crowd. Also didn't want to buy a huge bag of shrimp and didn't have time to hit a lot of stores for shrimp by the pound so just grabbed a box of frozen shrimp scampi and used it (tasted great). Also used Spanish smoked paprika which gave it a slight heat--but real soft and slight (my stomach doesn't handle spicy anymore, sob). You could do variations on this basic recipe too--substitute beans for the rice. Toss in some smokey sausage, or chopped fish, or chicken. It's flexible. Oh, couldn't find frozen artichoke hearts either so I used a couple large jars, drained and rinsed them really really well so they wouldn't taste so tangy. Made some garlic olive oil spinach on the side (a nice chunky salad would be good too), lots of warm french bread to soak up all the sauce, or tortillas.
