INGREDIENTS FOR CILANTRO LIME SHRIMP AND RICE:
  • olive oil
  • 1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt
  • red pepper flakes
  • lime juice
  • fresh cilantro
  • black beans
  • chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • uncooked Jasmine rice

COOK’S TIPS:
Use large raw shrimp, not small kind. Also, do not use pre-cooked small shrimp. When you use large raw shrimp and cook it with spices, you get so many more juices and so much more flavor!
With raw shrimp, make sure it’s peeled and deveined.
Do not use pre-cooked rice. Use rice, such as jasmine rice, that takes about 15-20 minutes to cook. This way, the rice has time to absorb all the flavors.
Use freshly squeezed lime juice – it’s not as acidic and has much richer flavor.

HOW TO MAKE CILANTRO LIME SHRIMP AND RICE:
First, cook raw shrimp, sprinkled with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, and minced garlic in a large skillet on medium heat, stirring once or twice, on medium heat, about 3-4 minutes total, until pink in color. Remove shrimp from the skillet to a plate.
To the same (now empty) skillet, add chicken broth, water, uncooked rice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Bring to boil. Mix everything well. Reduce the heat to low boil simmer. Cover the skillet with the lid. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, covered, until the rice is cooked through.
Mix in the lime juice, rinsed and drained black beans, and fresh cilantro into the cooked rice.
Mix to combine:
Add extra lime juice (about 1 tablespoon) and extra chopped fresh cilantro to the plate with shrimp, mix to coat shrimp with lime juice and cilantro. Add the cilantro lime shrimp to the skillet with rice and gently reheat.
