Skillet Shrimp and Rice

Submitted by: CHERIJ30


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    4 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (3 oz)
    1 small onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
    2 cups long-grain rice
    1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
    3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    1 1/2 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning
    Salt
    1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

Directions

Serves 6

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place bacon in a large oven proof skillet and cook over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to drain.
2. Discard all but 1 Tbsp fat from pan. Add onion, garlic and bell pepper to pan and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, broth, Old bay seasoning and salt; bring mixture to a boil.
3. Cover and transfer pan to oven. Cook until rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Uncover, lay shrimp on rice, re-cover, and continue to bake until shrimp are opaque, another 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle with bacon and serve.

TIP: I buy the frozen peeled shrimp already cooked and just add them to the pot while it is cooking in the oven. This way, as the rice cooks, the shrimp are getting heated through as well.
