    About this dish

    Silky-soft green onions enliven whole-grain rice that serves as the base of a satisfying bowl of garlicky sauteed shrimp and zucchini with herbed lemon-Dijon sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 2 cups sliced green onions
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
    • 2 pouchs UNCLE BEN’S® READY RICE® Whole Grain Brown Rice
    • 2 1/2 cups sliced zucchini
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 pound peeled and deveined large shrimp
    • 1/2 cup unsalted chicken stock
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
    • 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
    • Tarragon leaves for garnish (optional)

    Instructions

    1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add green onions and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Cover and cook until green onions are tender, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes; add a tablespoon of water during cooking if green onions start to brown. Add rice to skillet; cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Divide rice mixture evenly among 4 bowls.
    2. Increase heat to medium-high and add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Add zucchini and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt; saute 3 minutes or until zucchini starts to soften. Add garlic and shrimp; cook 4 minutes or until shrimp are done. Divide mixture evenly among bowls.
    3. Add chicken stock, lemon juice, and mustard to skillet, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; cook 3 minutes or until sauce slightly thickens. Remove from heat, and stir in butter and tarragon. Drizzle sauce evenly over bowls. Sprinkle with goat cheese. Garnish with additional tarragon, if desired.
