One-Pan Shrimp & Veggie Mexican-Style Rice

with Spiced Crema

Cooking time

25 minutes




480 /serving

Here’s a recipe that really pans out. All you need is a family-size skillet that can slide from the stovetop (where you’ll start by sautéing the veggies) into a hot oven (where it finishes cooking to tenderness). In between, pink curls of shrimp, cherry tomatoes, sweet peppers and peas nestle up in a bed of long-grain white rice. A squeeze of fresh lime juice and a dollop of crema blended with our Latin Accent spices seal the deal.

We will send you:

  • 450g Shrimp
  • 280g Cherry tomatoes
  • 1 Shallot (or onion)

  • 60ml Crema

Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Core and medium-dice the sweet peppers. Halve, peel and thinly slice the shallot. Juice the lime. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towel (remove the shells from the tails if desired); season with ⅓ of the spices and S&P.

Sauté the vegetables & start the rice
In a large, high-sided, oven-safe pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the tomatoes, sweet peppers, shallot, all but a pinch of the remaining spices and S&P. Sauté, 2 to 4 min., until the tomatoes begin to burst and the sweet peppers begin to soften. Add the rice, 2 ½ cups water and a pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Cover, transfer to the oven and bake, 8 to 10 min., until the rice is partially cooked.

Finish the rice & cook the shrimp
When the rice is partially cooked, remove from the oven and add the shrimp. Cover and bake, 8 to 10 min., until the shrimp* are opaque and cooked through and the vegetables and rice are tender. In the final 2 min., add the peas, remaining lime juice and S&P; stir well.
