Caribbean Shrimp Bowls

(sweet honey-glazed shrimp with coconut rice)

Serves 4

What you need:

For the shrimp:

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

3 tablespoons Savannah Bee Company® Orange Blossom Honey, or your favorite Savannah Bee Company® honey

1 teaspoon ground cumin

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 jalapeño, seeded and minced

1½ pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined

¼ cup salted butter

For the Coconut Rice:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1½ cups long-grain white rice

1 cup chicken broth

1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk

½ teaspoon salt

For Serving:

Warmed black beans, diced avocado, fresh cilantro, lime wedges

What to do:

1. Wash Up!

2. Make the Marinade: Combine the vegetable oil, garlic, ginger, honey, cumin, cilantro, and jalapeño.

3. Marinate the Shrimp: Place the shrimp in a bowl or large zip-top plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the shrimp, turning to coat. Cover or seal and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

4. Make the Coconut Rice: Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the rice and cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken broth, coconut milk, and salt. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Fluff the rice with a fork.

5. Cook the Shrimp: Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and the marinade and sauté 4 to 5 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink and are cooked through.

To Serve: Divide the rice evenly between serving bowls. Top with the shrimp, black beans, avocado, and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

Pro Tip: Avoid mushy, stick-to-the-bottom-of-the-pot rice by rinsing the rice before you cook it.
