This recipe will remind you a lot of shrimp scampi.
I really liked the brown rice that I served with it. Enjoy!
1 cup brown rice
1 2/3 cups water
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup white wine
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 ½ lbs. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
¼ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
½ tsp. cornstarch
Combine the brown rice and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook until all of the water is absorbed, about 25 minutes.
While rice is cooking, melt the butter with the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 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, 5-7 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.
Serve hot over the brown rice.
