From the Test Kitchen

Simmering white rice with tomatoes and spices turns it a beautifully vibrant color—and infuses it with flavor, as the grains absorb the tomatoes’ juices and the essential oils of the spices. In our signature spice blend, we’re including dried, ground orange peel. With fresh orange in the arugula salad and lemon juice in the sauce for our sautéed shrimp, this gourmet meal offers plenty of citrusy brightness.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and mince the garlic. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on an angle, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Cut off the top and bottom of the orange so it sits flat on the cutting board; cut off and discard the rind and white pith. Thinly slice the orange into rounds, removing and discarding any seeds.

Make the tomato rice:
2 Make the tomato rice:

In a medium pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the white bottoms of the scallions, spice blend and half the garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, rice and 2 cups of water; season with salt and pepper. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer 20 to 22 minutes, or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Transfer to a serving dish.

Cook the shrimp:
4 Cook the shrimp:

Once the rice has simmered for about 15 minutes, pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp and remaining garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the garlic is fragrant and the shrimp are slightly opaque. Add the butter and the juice of all 4 lemon wedges; cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until well combined and the shrimp are opaque and cooked through. Remove from heat; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Make the salad:
5 Make the salad:

Just before serving, in a large bowl, combine the arugula and orange; season with salt and pepper. Add enough vinaigrette to coat the salad (you may have extra). Toss to combine; season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish.

Serve your dish:
6 Serve your dish:

Transfer the cooked shrimp to a serving dish. Garnish the shrimp and tomato rice with the green tops of the scallions. Serve with the salad on the side. Enjoy!
