Basically Cook-Free Brown Rice

18 Apr

I like brown rice.  It’s good for you but for me, sometimes when I cook it, it doesn’t come out right.
Thankfully, today you can get it already cooked and ready to go!  There are two that I like because they are good for cooking for one, Birds Eye Steam Fresh and Minutes Brown Rice in a Cup.

Another thing I found at the grocery is skewered ready to cook shrimp.  Remove off the skewer and marinate, cook, fry.

Below is a quick and simple brown rice and shrimp dish!  Enjoy!

1 Bag of Birds Eye Steam Fresh Brown Rice
1/3 Cup of Slivered Almonds
1/2 Cup of Orange Juice
1/3 Cup of Pineapple Juice
1 Tablespoon of Butter
2 Cloves of Garlic, Chopped and Divided
Salt and Pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
10 Shrimp, Peeled, Vein Removed

I ate an entire container of pineapple and had leftover juice so I added Orange Juice to it with salt and pepper and half the garlic in it.  The pineapple had a cover so cover it up and shake it up!  I am sure that the longer you marinate it the more the juice will flavor the shrimp so it’s up to you how long you keep it before you cook it, but don’t keep it for too long or it’ll go bad.  Put the rice in the microwave and cook according to the directions.  There are stovetop directions for those of you who don’t have a microwave.

In a frying pan saute garlic, olive oil and butter.  Pour some of the pineapple/orange juice into the pan.  It’s ok if more garlic is on the pan.   Add almonds.  Continue to let heat and add shrimp.  When shrimp is cooked all the way through add brown rice.  Add more salt and pepper to taste.  Serve warm.

C’est si Yum!!
