Saucy Shrimp over Rice

A super simple supper your whole family will enjoy!


  • 1 pound of shrimp (thawed if frozen; we love Trader Joe’s Red Argentinian Shrimp)
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 (4 oz) jar of diced pimentos, drained
  • 1 (11 oz) jar of your favorite pepper jelly (we love Trader Joe’s!)
  • a few chopped green onions to garnish, optional
  • Cooked and ready to eat rice (whichever kind you love!)


  1. Make sure you are using fresh shrimp or that your frozen shrimp has thawed.  I like to lightly pat mine with a paper towel to make sure they’re not too wet going into the skillet.  Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté your red onion until tender in a nice drizzle of EVOO and big pinch of both salt and pepper.
  3. Once your onion is tender (about 8 minutes or so), stir in your shrimp, pimentos and pepper jelly.  Let your shrimp warm up a minute (it really only takes a few minutes), and then remove the skillet from heat and serve your saucy shrimp over your cooked rice.  Garnish with a bit of chopped green onion, optional.


A super simple recipe that can easily be doubled too!
