Total Time:

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1 can (28 ounces) whole peeled plum tomatoes with their juices, coarsely chopped

  • ¾ cup long-grain white rice

  • 1 pound fresh or thawed frozen large shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1 package (10 ounces) thawed frozen spinach, drained and squeezed of excess moisture

  • Feta, crumbled, for serving

  • Fresh mint leaves, for serving (optional)


  1. Heat a large straight-sided skillet over medium-high heat; swirl in oil. Add onion, season with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until just softened, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and juices and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened and reduced slightly, about 5 minutes.

  2. Stir in rice and 2 1/2 cups water, then return to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until rice is tender, about 12 minutes. Stir in shrimp and spinach and simmer, covered, until shrimp is just pink and opaque, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve, sprinkled with feta and mint and drizzled with oil.
