Have the Life You Deserve ~ Take the Tour Now

1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 onion, finely chopped
1 1/3 cups long-grain rice
2 2/3 cups vegetable stock
1 tsp lemon rind, grated
3 cups fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
1 tsp dried dill
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 lb shrimp

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and sauté for about 4-5 minutes, until tender. Then add the garlic and sauté for a further few minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in the rice, stock and add the lemon juice. Stir well.

Bring rice to a boil, immediately turn down the heat and cover. Simmer for about 15 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed by the rice. Stir in the spinach, dill and lemon juice, mix well. Again cover the mixture and allow to cook for a few minutes until the spinach is wilted. Stir in the shrimp and cook until the shrimp are cooked through and hot.

Serve immediately.
