The nutritional content of recipes is calculated by a registered dietitian. Because ingredients and measurements may vary, the values we give are close approximations.


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic in the skillet for 3 or 4 minutes. Add the celery and cook for another 3 minutes. Stir in rice and water, cover and bring to a boil.
  2. Turn heat down to low, place broccoli and shrimp on top of the rice, cover and simmer (you may need to adjust heat so that contents continue to simmer gently) for 15 minutes until rice is cooked, broccoli is tender and shrimp are pink.
  3. Season with lemon juice and pepper. Divide among plates. Enjoy!
