Your One Pan Shrimp Dinner……

………..will be done and on the table in 20 minutes and it,,is,,good! The shrimp and the gnocchi both cook so fast that it’ll be ready before you know it.

A couple of  tips to get started

  •  Frozen broccoli florets don’t have to cleaned or cut up so they help speed things along.  Peas are even faster.
  •  If you are using frozen shrimp just thaw them out in the microwave. It only takes a minute or 2 and get the ones that have already been peeled and deveined to make things even quicker.

Put a large skillet on at medium high. Swirl in enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the broccoli and the chopped garlic then squeeze some lemon juice in and toss in the rind. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes tossing a few times during the process. And……..

………..when the broccoli just begins to wilt a little put in the shrimp and the gnocchi. Toss a few times as it all cooks together.

Wow! Do you think we just set a record for a quick and easy weeknight meal?

Shrimp Fried Rice with Snow Peas – One Pan – Quick and Easy – Gluten Free

Shrimp Fried Rice with Snow Peas-one-pan-gluten free-11-poppopcooks.com

Shrimp Fried Rice with Snow Peas

All in one pan including the rice!

You probably have noticed that I’ve posted a couple of Shrimp Fried Rice recipes before but never with snow peas. Snow peas can go great with just about any meat or fish but especially shrimp…..

……If you are using frozen shrimp put them in a bowl of cold water and they will be thawed out by the time the rice is done. Put a large sauté pan on at medium high. Add the water, the salt and the minute rice. Or, regular rice if you want. For meals like this I’ve settled on brown minute rice.

Shrimp Fried Rice with Snow Peas - One Pan - Quick and Easy - Gluten Free-poppopcooks.com

Stir it and bring it to a fast simmer. Lower the heat to the point that it maintains a simmer and cover with a lid. Follow the instructions on the box for the best cooking time for the rice that you are using. Check to see if any more water is needed at about 3 minutes short of the prescribed cooking time. If so just enough to bring the surface of the liquid even with the top of the rice.

While the rice is cooking chop up the onion and garlic. Whisk up the egg –  or eggs – and have the snow peas standing by.

Shrimp Fried Rice with Snow Peas-5 - One Pan - Quick and Easy - Gluten Free-poppopcooks.com

Raise the heat on the pan to medium high and add just enough olive oil to cover the bottom. Put in the onions, garlic and shrimp.

Spread the shrimp out so they are all lying flat and give them about a minute and a half a side. Add the snow peas to the pan and stir a couple of times as they warm up. That’s about all that you want to do is warm them up. Then put the rice in and add the soy sauce. Stir it all together and stir a few more times as the rice gets heated back up.

When it is all heated up serve up your Shrimp Fried Rice with Snow Peas.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas – Quick and Easy -One Pot – 25 Minutes – Gluten Free

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-4-poppopcooks.com

Shrimp Risotto with Peas

Yes, you will have this whole meal on the table in 25 minutes or less. Yes, you will use just one pot for the whole meal. Leftovers (if there are any) just go in a zip lock and plop in the freezer for a lunch at work or a super  quick and easy weeknight nuke it no brainer.

Some Helpful kitchen gadgets

First let me recommend that you use Italian Arborio rice. That’s not a brand name, it’s a type of rice. It takes just a little bit longer to cook but the good taste is well worth it.

The best rice for Shrimp Risotto with Peas-poppopcooks.com

Put a saucepan on at medium and add the olive oil. Chop up the onion and add it to the pan. Salt, pepper and a little garlic powder. Mix it all together and when the onion starts to get translucent add the rice. Stir the rice around enough to get all of it coated with the olive oil.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-poppopcooks.com

Then pour the white wine in and stir it all up. Bring it up to a simmer and stir regularly until the wine has reduced to the top of the rice.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-2-poppopcooks.com

Put half of the chicken broth into the mix and stir often as it reduces. When the liquid has reduced to the the level of the rice add the rest of the broth. Repeat the stirring and reducing until the rice is cooked. If the liquid has reduced to the level of the rice but the rice hasn’t cooked enough just add more broth – or water – in small doses until the rice is cooked. Then put the shrimp and peas into the pot.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-3-poppopcooks.com

Mix the peas and shrimp in with the rice and stir often until the shrimp has turned white and opaque in the middle. About 3 – 4 minutes. Mix in the grated parmesan cheese and enjoy your one pot Shrimp Risotto with Peas.

Top it off with a little more grated Parmesan cheese. Chilled Pinot Grigio or Chablis goes along great with this quick and easy one pot meal.
