Sweet Chili Shrimp And Rice

Sweet Chili Shrimp and Rice 007This wonderful shrimp dish is so simple.  Only a few ingredients and so quick to make.  If your in a hurry do the prep work ahead then 10 minutes before you want to eat, pop the shrimp in the oven, cook the rice and serve.  It’s that simple.  We love this dish because it is not only quick but it has real nice flavor and it is light. Like they say.  Try it, you’ll like  it.

Sweet Chili Shrimp and Rice 002This shrimp was on special so I picked up a few and in the freezer they went.  I just have to take off the shells.

Sweet Chili Shrimp and Rice 003Place the cleaned shrimp into a foil lined pan, for easy clean up.  Pour 1-1/2 – 2 cups of a sweet chili sauce over it and the juice of 1/2 a lemon and marinate for 40 minutes.  Place in the oven at 370 degrees for 6-7 minutes or longer.  Depending on your oven and how well done you like your shrimp.  Time this,  so it is done when the rice has just 8 minutes to go.

Sweet Chili Shrimp and Rice 001Of course I use my handy dandy microwave rice cooker.

Sweet Chili Shrimp and Rice 004  I add about 2 cups of rice and enough water to come to my first knuckle when my finger is placed on top of the rice.  A trick I learned from someone I use to work with.

Sweet Chili Shrimp and Rice 005 I add a few swigs of soya sauce.  Cover and cook for 12 minutes.  I then check it and if it is not cooked I place it back in the microwave,  usually with a bit more water if it is a little dry.

Sweet Chili Shrimp and Rice 006Perfect!

Sweet Chili Shrimp and Rice 007On to a dish and your ready to eat.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Serve with lemon wedges.  Lemon added here gives it a nice fresh taste.  Seems to wake the dish up.

RECIPE

2 Cups Of Sweet Chili Sauce

Juice Of 1/2 A Lemon, Plus

2 Cups Of Raw Rice

Water

Few Swigs Of Soya Sauce

Salt And Pepper To Taste

Chives (Opt.)

PREPARATION

Clean shrimp and place in a foil lined pan with sweet chili sauce and the juice and rind of 1/2 lemon.  Marinade for 40 minutes.  Place in oven and cook for 6-7 minutes.

Cook rice according to package directions, making sure that the shrimp is placed in the oven during the last 8 minutes of cooking time of the rice.  This way they will both be hot and ready to eat at the same time.

This is really, really tasty and so quick to make.

ENJOY!
