One Pan Italian Shrimp And Rice

This is a great one pot dish that is light yet bursting with flavor and packed with protein. Herbs and tomatoes give it great layers of flavor that makes you want to keep going back for more, and the arborio rice gives it a luscious and creamy texture. It will definitely become a recurring character in your weekly rotation.

  1. Heat a large straight sided pan over medium-high heat. Add the oil and heat another 30 seconds. Add the shallots to the hot oil and cook, stirring often until soft and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the drained tomatoes and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook the tomatoes, gently crushing with the back of a wooden spoon, until the juices are thick, about 3 minutes. Stir in the rice and coat in the tomatoes. Cook for 3 minutes to toast slightly. Add the vegetable broth, water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Cover and simmer until the rice is still al dente and there is still some liquid left in the pan, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, season the shrimp with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, oregano and red pepper flakes. Nestle the shrimp into the rice, and sprinkle with the spinach. Cover and continue to cook until the shrimp are opaque all the way through, another 7 to 10 minutes. Fluff the rice and sprinkle with the basil.

    Hi @richard! You can use whatever rice you have on hand, just be sure to adjust cooking time based on the package instructions!

    Hi! When making the italian shrimp and rice dish, can I use acquerello rice in place of arborio? Thanks!
