Cilantro Lime Shrimp and Rice

An easy one pot dish for Cilantro Lime Shrimp and Rice. Ready in 30 minutes or less.

This is a great one pot dish that is a delicious, healthy meal.  I like to make it for dinner or even meal prep it for lunches. Start off by making your shrimp, use fresh shrimp, but if you are really short on time you can use frozen precooked shrimp, just defrost and reheat.

Once shrimp is done cooking you will add your rice to the same skillet. I usually use a quick cook rice, one that cooks in 15 minutes or less. Cook that until finished and add your lime juice, beans and cilantro.

Mix it together and add your shrimp back in and reheat for a minute.

Hope you enjoy this recipe. Be sure to save to your PINTEREST boards for the future.
