From the Test Kitchen

Here, we're coating plump shrimp with fragrant vadouvan curry, then basting them in the pan with a savory-sweet tomato achaar and honey glaze to imbue the shrimp with deliciously bold, Indian-style flavor. It's perfectly tempered by a bed of zesty rice and a creamy lime yogurt drizzled on top.

Indian-Style Shrimp & Lime Rice with Mustard Seed Green Beans
Title
  • 10 oz Tail-On Shrimp (Peeled & Deveined)
  • ½ cup Brown Rice
  • 2 Tbsps Tomato Achaar
  • 6 oz Green Beans
  • 1½ tsps Brown & Yellow Mustard Seeds
  • 1 Lime
  • ½ cup Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tsps Vadouvan Curry Powder
  • 2 tsps Honey

Cook the rice
1 Cook the rice

In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 1/4 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 23 to 25 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

Prepare the ingredients
2 Prepare the ingredients

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 2 teaspoons. Quarter the lime. Roughly chop the cashews. To make the glaze, in a bowl, combine the honey, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the tomato achaar as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. In a separate bowl, combine the yogurt, the juice of 2 lime wedges, and 2 teaspoons of water; season with salt and pepper.

Cook the green beans
3 Cook the green beans

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the green beans in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the green beans are softened and the water has cooked off. Add the mustard seeds. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan. 

Cook & glaze the shrimp
4 Cook & glaze the shrimp

Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels (remove the tails if desired). Place in a bowl; season with salt, pepper, and enough of the curry powder to coat (you may have extra). Toss to coat. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the shrimp are coated, opaque, and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

Add the lime zest to the pot of cooked rice; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Serve the glazed shrimp (including any glaze from the pan) with the finished rice and cooked green beans. Top the shrimp with the lime yogurt. Garnish with the chopped cashews. Serve the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
