Skillet Sunday- Indian Spiced Rice with Shrimp and Peas

Indian Spiced Rice with Shrimp and Peas

I made this dish a few weeks ago when the weather was still cold.  It goes together really quickly and has some great spices.  I had no time to make soup this weekend. I was busy at a bike clinic and a bike race.   Now that the weather is warmer, I will be featuring more salads and skillet based recipes.

1 tablespoon olive oil
½ large onion, chopped
Salt and pepper
1 ½ tablespoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon turmeric
1 cup long grain brown rice
2 cups chicken stock
8 ounces shrimp
1 cup frozen peas
½ cup parsley chopped
2 tablespoon lemon juice

Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and season with salt and pepper.  Cover and stir occasionally until tender.  Add the ginger, garlic, and curry powder.

Add the rice and stir to coat with the oil spice mixture.  Stir in the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Fold in the shrimp and peas. Cook until the shrimp and rice are cooked.  Remove from the heat and fold in the parsley and lemon juice.

Serves 4
