Spicy Seared Shrimp with Mardi Gras Rice

This is one of my favorite shrimp recipies...

Spicy Seared Shrimp on Mardi Gras Rice

2 Tbsp olive oil
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 c fat-free chicken broth
1 c long-grain white rice
1 c frozen peas
½ tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
½ tsp dried thyme
1 ¼ lb large shrimp, peeled and cleaned

Heat 1 Tbsp oil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Add celery and pepper and cook 2-3 minutes. Add broth, bring to a boil and stir in rice. Cover, lower heat and simmer about 20 minutes. Turn off heat. Stir in peas, cover. Let stand 5 minutes or until peas are heated through.

Meanwhile, combine 4 seasonings and toss with shrimp. Heat remaining Tbsp of oil over medium-high heat in a skillet. Add shrimp, and cook for 4 minutes, turning once. Divide rice among 4 plates, top with shrimp.

I'm not really into spicy foods.. but, the rice sounds wonderful and it must be really pretty! Thanks for posting this.

It is very colorful. You can make the shrimp as spicy or mild as you want. Just adjust the seasonings accordingly.
