A good dinner, originally made with some leftovers I had plus the shrimp from the freezer. The cholesterol count on my shrimp (Maker's Mark from Sam's Club) isn't as high as the shrimp from the database. I show 115 mg (38% of RDA) versus the 165 mg listed on the shrimp from this site's database. However, the sodium on my shrimp is way higher (550 mg on mine vs. 190 on the database's). :(

Recipe Ingredients for Shrimp and Black Beans over Brown Rice

1 cup brown rice, cooked
1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed
3 oz. medium-sized frozen shrimp, cooked and cleaned
1/2 cup frozen green peas, cooked and drained
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. chili powder

Recipe Directions for Shrimp and Black Beans over Brown Rice

Sprinkle the spices over the rice while it is still steaming, so they will mix in (if the rice was cold, then heat it with the spices plus a tablespoon of water in the microwave for a minute). Mix in the steamed peas, shrimp, and beans (warm them separately or all together). This is sort of a fake paella and is good on the fiber side if not as good on sodium.
