Instructions

Cook rice
1
  • Heat a medium pot over medium heat.
  • Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
  • When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then half the garlic to the pot. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 2-3 min.
  • Add rice, broth concentrate, 1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 cups) water and 1/8 tsp (1/4 tsp) salt. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
  • Remove from heat. Set aside, covered.
Prep and make lemon-garlic butter
2
  • Meanwhile, zest lemon, then juice half. Cut remaining lemon into wedges.
  • Roughly chop parsley.
  • Halve zucchini lengthwise.
  • Core, then halve pepper.
  • Core, then halve jalapeño. (TIP: Use gloves when prepping jalapeños.)
  • Heat a small non-stick pan over medium-low heat.
  • When hot, add remaining garlic and 3 tbsp (6 tbsp) butter. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 3-5 min.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Add lemon zest, lemon juice and half the parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
Prep shrimp
3
  • Using a strainer, drain and rinse shrimp, then pat dry with paper towels. Season with Cajun Spice Blend, salt and pepper.
  • Working with one skewer at a time, carefully thread shrimp onto skewers.
Grill veggies
4
  • Add zucchini, peppers, jalapeños and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.
  • Add veggies to one side of the grill. Close lid and grill, flipping once, until tender-crisp, 4-6 min.
  • Transfer veggies to a plate to cool slightly.
Grill shrimp
5
  • When veggies are almost done, add shrimp to the other side of the grill. Close lid and grill shrimp, flipping once, until cooked through, 2-3 min per side.**
Finish and serve
6
  • Cut zucchini into 1/2-inch half-moons.
  • Cut all peppers into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Add rice, grilled veggies and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter to the same large bowl (from step 4). Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine.
  • Divide jewelled rice and shrimp skewers between plates. Sprinkle remaining parsley over top.
  • Serve lemon-garlic butter on the side for dipping.
  • Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
