Grilled Shrimp & Herbed Feta Rice Bowl

This yummy meal is quick, simple and easy to prepare. The shrimp cooks quickly, and the basmati is easy to make in a rice cooker. Just add the rice, broth and salt and it will beep when it’s done. Delicious rice has never been easier. When the rice cooker is finished, stir in some of the tomatoes, feta and oregano to create a Mediterranean style base.

Grilled shrimp is one of our favorite summertime treats, but there’s no reason we can’t enjoy it in January with an indoor searing grill. Shrimp does well on the grill because it cooks rapidly at high temperatures. We grilled our shrimp on kebab sticks, but you can use a grill basket or foil if you prefer. Make sure the grill is very, very hot before placing shrimp on the grates, so it cooks quickly and gets perfect grill marks. To present the dish, you can simply lay a kebab over the bowl or you can slide the shrimp off and serve it over the rice.

Fresh oregano makes an aromatic garnish, and the lime wedges add a pop of bright flavor to the meal. We especially like to squeeze lime juice directly over the shrimp to bring out its flavor. Eat leftovers the next day in the form of a cool, refreshing salad – just mix any remaining shrimp into the leftover rice and refrigerate in an airtight container. The next day, you’ll notice even more oregano flavor in the rice. We love this dish for its ease and bright flavors, but also because it’s healthy while feeling hearty.

  1. had a 250 watt mixer for 11/2 years that was used maybe 2-3 times a month that would not hold the beaters, one kept falling out so I took it apart to see what was wrong and found that during assembly the metal ring that goes where the beater is clipped into was left off on the side that kept falling out. when I called Hamilton Beach to see if they would replace the unit I was told that the mixer was out of warranty . I thought it probably was but since this issue was clearly a manufacturing assembly problem that they would stand behind it. I know that other companies do but Hamilton Beach refused to stand behind their product.
