Directions

Shrimp
1. In a medium bowl, add shrimp and combine with Jerk seasoning and cumin. Allow to marinate for a 10 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat with a tablespoon olive oil. Sear shrimp in the skillet (making sure it doesn’t crowd) and cook on both side for one minute. Add onion and red pepper flakes, season with a pinch of salt. Add green bell pepper and cook, stirring once or twice, on medium heat, about 3-4 minutes total, until shrimp is pink in color. Deglaze with 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth and give a quick stir. Remove shrimp from the skillet to a plate and set aside.

Rice
3. To the same skillet, add a tablespoon olive oil and uncooked rice. Give a good stir to coat rice with oil and fry for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add chicken broth and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low boil simmer. Cover the skillet with the lid. Simmer for 10-12 minutes, covered, until the rice is cooked through. You might add 1/2 cup water if your rice is not completely cooked through.

Salsa
4. In the meantime you can prepare the mango salsa by dicing and combining all ingredients. Set aside in the refrigerator.

Final steps
5. When rice is done. Mix in drained black beans into the cooked rice. Stir well to combine.

6. Add the cooked shrimp to the skillet with rice and gently reheat with a quick stir. Adjust seasoning with salt and fresh cracked pepper and garnish with fresh thyme. Serve the shrimp and rice with salsa. Enjoy!
