Starting with the foundation of this dish, the rice. For this specific recipe, we like to use either our Mahatma® Ready to Heat Jasmine Rice or Mahatma® White Rice. The grains in these two varietals are perfect for pilafs, salads and rice bowls. Once your rice is set, it’s on the main event–charring the shrimp. Brushed with a bit of oil, these skewers are then charred over hot coals and grilled until pink.
Once your shrimp is ready to go, the rest is easy as a rice bowl should be. Add in the drained corn and chopped sun-dried tomatoes–preferably ones that have been marinated in oil–along with cheese, and fresh slivered basil leaves.
Bursting with smoky, sweet and acidic flavors, these savory grilled shrimp rice bowls are bound to impress. So next time you’re at the grocery store, head to the seafood aisle, fire up the barbecue, and amaze your dinner guests!
