Lemony Shrimp over Brown Rice Recipe


1 cup brown rice
1 2/3 cups water
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp – peeled and deveined
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch


Combine the brown rice and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook until all the water is absorbed, about 25 minutes.

Melt the butter with the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the garlic in the butter and oil until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in the wine and lemon juice; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer. Stir in the shrimp and cook until the shrimp turns pink, stirring regularly, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle the parsley over the shrimp and cook another 2 minutes. Add the cornstarch to the liquid and stir until it thickens, about 1 minute more. Serve hot over the brown rice.
