Grilled Shrimp with Herbed Rice

Grilled Shrimp with Herbed Rice - Meatballs & Milkshakes

While we are once again doing the Bon Appetit Food Lovers Cleanse, I’ve reserved some posts to keep you busy. These could probably even be considered cleanse-worthy, so enjoy some healthy food in the new year! If you can brave the weather, get outside and grill some shrimp. If not, these would be almost as good inside on a grill pan. The herbed rice is a perfect side for anything, just combine brown rice with a bunch of chopped green herbs!

Grilled Shrimp with Herbed Rice

2 cups brown rice, cooked according to instructions in salted water or chicken stock

1 pound cleaned shrimp (medium size works best)

Juice and zest of 2 limes

1 tablespoon mirin

1 tablespoon fish sauce

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon grated ginger

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

1.5 tablespoons chopped mint

1 tablespoons chopped sage

1 minced scallion

Combine the lime, mirin, fish sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger, and olive oil together. Marinade the shrimp for 30-60 minutes. Meanwhile, soak skewers in water so that they don’t burn on the grill. Skewer the shrimp and grill for 3 minutes on each side, or until just cooked through.

Combine the cooked rice with the herbs and 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil. Serve with the shrimp.
