5 cups diced peeled tomatoes
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 cups raw long-grain white rice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/4 teaspoons salt

    I would wait until the rice is almost cooked rather than add the precooked shrimp and simmering it with the rest of the ingredients for 30 minutes until the rice is tender. Cooking already cooked shrimp that long will ruin it, making tough or gummy. Or, use uncooked shrimp instead, that way its flavor will blend with the rest while not getting overcooked.
