Arroz con Camarones

I had been asked for an Arroz con Camarones recipes not that long ago. I looked through all my videos and realized you know what? I don’t have one out and I thought I did! Now this is my easy version of the dish. Lol I know a lot of people are traditionalists when it comes ot Puerto Rican cooking and I am not proclaiming this is what my Dad brought when he moved from the island lol.
