The holidays are almost here and everyone seems to in frenzy which often does not leave much time for preparing healthy home made meals. Specially during times like these I am always on the lookout for products that will make my life easier so I was happy when I was asked to create a sponsored post for Minute® Rice and challenged with coming up with a healthy and easy recipe idea. Lately I’ve really been into preparing fun and flavorful rice bowls, I love how easy and versatile they are and this time I used the Minute® Rice Multi-Grain Medley, which is a combination of brown rice, red rice, wild rice and quinoa, to make a delicious and balanced recipe I am calling Chipotle Citrus Shrimp Rice Bowls.
Chipotle Citrus Shrimp Rice Bowl
- 1 1/2 pounds of large shrimp shelled and deveined
- 3 limes
- 1 box of Minute® Rice Multi-Grain Medley
- 1/2 cup of pineapple salsa
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 cup grape tomatoes diced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- Zest of one orange
- 1 lemon zested and juiced
- 1 tablespoon chipotle adobo sauce
- 1 teaspoon flour
- salt and pepper to taste
Prepare the Minute® Rice Multi-Grain Medley according to the instructions on the box.
While the rice is cooking heat the oil and butter in a skillet.
Add the shrimp and chipotle sauce and sauté until shrimp start turning pink.
Add the orange juice, lemon juice and zest and let the liquids reduce.
Sprinkle the flour until the sauce thickens and covers the shrimp.
Once rice is ready add the salsa and mix well.
Serve the rice in bowls, top with the tomato, avocado and shrimp.
This recipe is super easy to make and for a kid friendly version all you need to do is leave the chipotle out or just sprinkle. I really like the nutty, rich flavor of brown rice and Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is the newest product from Minute® Rice. It’s a blend of four gluten-free foods and made with 100% whole grains, including long grain brown rice, Thai red rice, wild rice and quinoa and it conveniently cooks in 10 minutes.
