Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown rice

  • 1 ⅔ cups water

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup white wine

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 ½ pounds medium shrimp - peeled and deveined

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • ½ teaspoon cornstarch

Directions

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
