I love this quick and easy Shrimp, Peas and Rice dish, which can be made with white or brown rice.
Last week I shared this Shrimp, Broccoli and Orzo dish. For those of you observing Lent, I thought I would share another quick 30-minute meal using shrimp! You can see more Lenten friendly recipes here.
This dish always brings back memories of my childhood. My Dad used to make this with white rice and lots of grated cheese at the end, almost like a risotto, but not. My Dad used a lot more butter when he made it, but this lightened up version is just as delicious. The brown rice cooks in chicken broth giving it lots of flavor.
Tips and Variations:
- I used converted brown rice to speed this up, which took about 25 minutes for the rice to cook. You can also make if faster with a quicker cook brown rice, if so, follow the directions on the package.
