  • 1 ½ cup uncooked Lundberg Organic White Jasmine Rice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 small onion small diced
  • ½ cup green pepper small diced
  • 4 ounces mushrooms small diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ¾ teaspoon salt divided
  • ¾ teaspoon black pepper divided
  • 2 ¼ cups chicken/vegetable broth
  • 1 pound large or jumbo shrimp peeled and de-veined


  • Rinse the rice with water to remove excess starch, set aside.
  • Heat a large deep pan over medium heat. Add two tablespoons olive oil, onions, peppers and mushrooms and cook until the vegetables soften and the onions become lightly golden, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook until it becomes fragrant, about 1 more minute.
  • Transfer the rinsed rice on top of the vegetables. Season with oregano, ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper and cook with the vegetables for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the chicken broth on top, bring to a boil, then simmer and cook for 15 minutes covered with a tight-fitting lid. Remove rice from heat and keep covered for 5 minutes before adding the shrimp.
  • Combine the shrimp with the remaining olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Nestle the shrimp into the rice when done cooking, cover and allow it to steam with the rice for 5 minutes. Remove the lid. Using tongs, flip the shrimp. Replace the lid and continue cooking until the shrimp are pink and opaque, about 5 minutes longer.
  • Fluff the rice with the shrimp and garnish with cilantro, if desired.



Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last up to 4 days.
Substitutes: You can add in whatever vegetables you have to this dish. You can use vegetable broth in the place of chicken broth.
