Another delicious recipe with black rice. I can’t get enough of it! Very easy to put together, delicious and (obviously hehe) healthy. Enjoy it!
Nicole’s CAJUN SHRIMP BLACK RISOTTO
Gluten Free – Clean Eating – High Fiber – Dairy Free
12/15 Peeled Shrimp
1 1/4 cup of Black Rice
2 1/2 cups of Water
2 Green Onions
1 Garlic Clove
2in. Piece of Fresh Ginger
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Spices for the Cajun Seasoning:
1 Tsp Turmeric
1 Tsp Ginger
1 Tsp Cumin
1 Tsp Paprika
½ Tsp Cayenne Pepper
Salt & Pepper
Rinse and pat dry the shrimp. In a small bowl combine all the Cajun Seasoning spices and toss the shrimp making sure they are evenly coated. In a medium pot heat the coconut oil and add the chopped green onions, minced garlic and ginger. Saute’ for about a minute or two, then add the seasoned shrimp. Stir for another two/three minutes to coat the shrimp with the oil then add the water, a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. When the water is boiling add the rice, cover and let it simmer on a low flame for 40/45 minutes, stirring occasionally making sure it is not sticking to the bottom of the pan.
After 45 minutes your rice should be ready: the water absorbed and you should have a ‘moist’ consistency. Turn off the flame, cover and let sit for 5 more minutes.
Serving suggestion: If you like cheese you are welcome to sprinkle a little Parmesan. I top it off with some fresh cilantro and/or green onions to add freshness and color to the dish 🙂
