15 Minute One Pan Shrimp and Rice

Share

I love to make this 15 Minute One Pan Shrimp and Rice for a quick midweek meal. I love quick and easy dinners that I can have on the table quickly during the week. Then I tend to focus on more elaborate meals at weekends when I have more time to spend in the kitchen. 

Start by soaking rice in plenty of water. Sauté onion in oil until lightly golden. Add the garlic, shrimp, and spices and continue to cook until the shrimp begins to turn pink. Add rice and water. When the mixture starts boiling, cover and lower the heat to low. Simmer until the rice is fully cooked and has absorbed all the water. Remove the lid after 10 minutes and allow any excess water to boil off. Fluff with a fork. Serve with a grating of Parmesan on top if desired! 

To make 15 Minute One Pan Shrimp and Rice, you will need the following ingredients:
