  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 1 medium orange
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 4 scallions
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flake
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • kosher salt
  • ground black pepper

Cook the rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, finely grate 2 teaspoon zest from the orange and set aside.

Cut away the peel and white pith from the orange and, working over a large bowl, cut into segments. Roughly chop the segments and place into the bowl.

Squeeze the juice into the bowl, then mix in the cilantro, scallions, garlic, 1 tablespoon oil, red pepper flakes, and ¼ teaspoon salt.

Heat the remaining tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the shrimp with the reserved zest, the cumin, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes.

Fold the rice and avocado into the seasoning mixture and serve with the shrimp.
