While visiting my Sister last week I was on the hunt for meat free dinner choices! I love to cook and Shrimp sounded good! I stumbled on this recipe and changed it up a bit! Everyone loved it so I wanted to add it here! Super Easy and Fancy!! :)
I always "mold" rice in a measuring cup!! My Mom asked how I did this to make it look pretty so I thought I would share that here as well. Food that looks good always taste good!
- In a small food processor, combine spinach, cilantro, onion, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, and vinegar. Pulse a few times and scrape down sides. With motor running, drizzle 1/2 cup olive oil into mixture and process until almost smooth.
- In a medium pot, cook rice according to package instructions; keep covered.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat remaining tablespoon olive oil. Sauté shrimp until cooked and pink in color, about 5 minutes. Turn off heat and toss shrimp well with half of chimichurri.
- Serve shrimp over rice pilaf, topped with remaining chimichurri sauce. Enjoy!
