For the Ginger Rice

  • 2 tablespoon Grapeseed Oil divided

  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Ginger peeled and minced
  • 1 Garlic Clove minced
  • 1 cup Long-Grain White Rice
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 cup Frozen Peas

For the Spiced Shrimp

  • 1 lb. Large Shrimp peeled and deveined
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ½ tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1 Lime cut in wedges for serving


For the Ginger Rice

  • In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil over medium-high. Add scallion whites, ginger, and garlic and cook, stirring often, until soft, 2-3 minutes.
  • Add rice, salt, and 2 cups water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce to a simmer, and cook until rice is tender about 15 minutes. 
  • Remove from heat and top with peas. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes, then add scallion greens and fluff rice with a fork. 

For the Spiced Shrimp

  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss shrimp with cumin, coriander, garlic powder and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon Grapeseed oil over medium-high. Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until opaque throughout, about 4-5 minutes. Serve shrimp with rice and lime wedges. 


  • Rice Cooker - If you own a rice cooker--cook your rice how you normally do. Just sauté the scallion whites and ginger in a pan, and then add it to the rice cooker.
  • Prep Ahead - To make this meal go even quicker feel free to put the spice blend together for the shrimp the night before.
