Citrus Glazed Shrimp with Cilantro Rice

I've been going through my Cooking Light up a little bit for the new year.  I found another great, fairly simple recipe that we had recently.

The rice had a Mexican flare to it and the Chipotle chili powder gave the shrimp a bit of a bite.  I liked the combination.



1 cup brown rice, prepared according to directions
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 4-ounce can chipped green chiles, drained


1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons lime zest
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cooking Spray
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons butter

After cooking the rice according to directions, add all the other ingredients and mix well.  Keep warm while preparing shrimp.

To prepare shrimp, combine shrimp, lime zest, garlic, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, and chili powder in a medium bowl, tossing shrimp to coat.  Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Coat pan with cooking spray.  Add shrimp and sauté for 3 minutes.  Stir in lime juice and butter, cook one additional minute more, tossing to coat.

Serve shrimp with rice.
