For the Shrimp Marinade, you will need:
1 pound of small shrimp
2 Tablespoons of each:
Olive Oil Mayonnaise
Sweet Chili Sauce
Rice Wine Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar
Whisk brown sugar and soy sauce to combine. Add remaining ingredients into a large bowl. Stir in the shrimp, cover, and refrigerate while preparing the rice and slaw.
For the Rice, you will need:
2 cups of dry rice
3 cups of chicken broth
the gratings of two lime rinds
the juice of two limes
1 cup of chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
Boil the chicken broth and sesame oil to a boil (you are using this in place of water) and add the rice. Reduce the heat and cook according to the rice directions. Once the rice is cooked, fluff the rice and add the cilantro and lime juice and rinds.
For the Mango Cabbage Slaw you will need:
1 head of cabbage, shredded
4 carrots, chopped
1 ripe mango, chopped
1 lime, juiced
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of rice vinegar
1 capful of apple cider vinegar
1/16 cup of white sugar
Whisk wet ingredients together, then toss over the cabbage, carrots, & mango. As a substitution, you can always use a bag of premade slaw that you find in your grocery store. Green onions are an optional garnish.
Preheat a cast iron skillet and swirl 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in the pan. Remove the shrimp from the refrigerator and brown them in the pan until they are a dark pink, around 4 minutes.
To prepare the dish: Put one cup of the rice on a plate, with the slaw on the side. Add the finished shrimp to the rice once browned.
