Black Rice & Spicy Shrimp Bowls

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Recipe of the day is healthy and filling black rice bowls with spicy shrimp, lots of lime juice and corn.
Apparently black rice is very nutritious and good for you – it’s got iron, vitamin E and note! more antioxidants than the blueberries and more fibres than the brown rice! Isn’t that great! If you still haven’t tried it, make sure to stock up on it!
It’s great in salads, sides and many other dishes which I haven’t tried yet!

The shrimp is cooked in sweet chilli sauce which I absolutely love! I added some corn and greens on top and voila!

Here’s what you need.

  1. In a pot, cover the rice with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for another 15 minutes or until ready. Add more water, if necessary.
  2. To cook the shrimp, heat a pan with a bit of olive oil, add the shrimps and the sweet chilli sauce and cook for about 4 minutes. Shrimps are very tender and do not require lots of cooking so be careful no to overcook them.
  3. Start combining the salad ingredients together – black rice, shrimp, corn and the dressing ingredients.
  4. Mix well and serve with some chives on top, if wished.
