Sauteed Shrimp with Scallion Rice and Soy-Lime Sauce

Source: Everyday Food, June 2009


  • 3 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 scallions, white and green parts separated, thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup long-grain white rice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sliced jalapeno or serrano chile
  • 1/4 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro


  1. In a small saucepan, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium. Add scallion whites, season with salt and pepper, and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add rice and 1/3 cup water and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce to a simmer; cook until rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, and chile. In a small nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high. Add shrimp and cook until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and top with scallion greens and cilantro. Serve shrimp with scallion rice and soy-lime sauce for dipping.

Cook's Note

Use kitchen shears to cut through the shell along the back of each shrimp, then peel and devein. If you don't have a jalapeno or serrano chile on hand for the soy-lime sauce, you can use a pinch of red-pepper flakes instead.
