Updated March 20, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked instant rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups fresh small broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup ready-to-serve fat-free chicken broth with 1/3 less sodium
  • 3 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons lime juice
  • 3/4 lb. fresh or frozen shelled deveined cooked medium shrimp, thawed
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Cook rice in water as directed on package, omitting margarine and salt.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add garlic; cook and stir about 30 seconds or until golden. Stir in broccoli, broth and curry powder; heat until bubbly. Cover; simmer 5 to 8 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender.
  • 3
    In small bowl, combine milk, cornstarch and salt; add mixture to skillet. Bring to a boil. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly.
  • 4
    Stir in lime juice and shrimp; cook until thoroughly heated. If desired, add salt and pepper to taste. Serve over rice. Sprinkle with coconut.

  • Shrimp isn’t only for special occasions; it’s a lean shellfish to use any time in stir-fries, pastas, egg dished and casseroles. Keep frozen shrimp in a sealed package in the freezer for up to two months. Remove only the amount you need for a recipe and thaw it as directed on the package.
  • Spoon this curry over a bed of rice on a decorative oblong china platter. Pass the platter family-style, or use it as part of a buffet.
  • Pass a bowl filled with chutney or place a small bowl of chutney at each place setting. For dessert, serve Raspberry-Topped Low Fat Cheesecake.
