Skillet Rice With Shrimp and Feta

Author: Canadian Living

Consider this dish as a Greek paella: Greek because of the classic shrimp, feta and dill combo; paella because all the ingredients are cooked with the rice and served at the table out of the pan.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 sweet yellow pepper diced
  • 1 cup diced fennel
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup long-grain white rice rinsed and drained well
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 1/2 cups sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1 lb large (31 to 40 count) shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 tomatoes seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 6 oz feta cheese crumbled (about 1-1/4 cups)
  • 1 lemon cut in 6 to 8 wedges

Method

In 12-inch (30 cm) nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook onion, yellow pepper, fennel, garlic, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 4 to 5 minutes.

Add rice; cook, stirring, until becoming translucent, about 1 minute. Stir in wine until absorbed. Stir in broth and 1/4 cup water; bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until rice is tender but still firm, 12 minutes.

Stir in shrimp, tomatoes and 2 tbsp of the dill; cook, covered, until shrimp are pink, 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove from heat and let stand for 2 minutes. Sprinkle with feta cheese and remaining dill. Serve with lemon wedges.
