Ingredients

For the vegetables and rice

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ cup tomatoes diced
  • 1 tablespoon spice mixed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 16 oz frozen mixed veggies thawed
  • 1 whole hot pepper
  • 3 cups of rice
  • 4 ½ cup water

For the Shrimp

  • 2 pound of Jumbo Shrimp cleaned and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup bell peppers sliced or chopped
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium oyster sauce original or vegetarian sauce
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • Few drops of lemon juice

Instructions

  • In a bowl, toss the cleaned and deveined shrimp with the oil, garlic, oyster sauce, and sweet peppers.
  • In a heavy bottom medium saucepan, add oil, garlic, spice mixture, tomatoes, followed by the veggies. Let mixture fry for about 2- 3 minutes stirring occasionally. Add rice, mix well, cook for an additional 2- 4 minutes. Pour 4 ¼ cups of water and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper and add whole pepper. Stir once, (be careful not to burst hot pepper. If burst, remove immediately) let cook uncovered until the water has almost evaporated. Cover and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes.
  • While the rice is cooking, in a skillet, sautéed the shrimp over moderately high heat, turning the shrimp once, until just pink throughout. Add the lemon juice and parsley.
  • Remove from heat then fluff with a fork and add cooked shrimp.
