With a cook time of less than 20 minutes, and filled with fresh flavor, this Chimichurri Shrimp Bowl is a healthy recipe that is perfect for an easy dinner or meal prep. Rice, crunchy slaw and shrimp are tossed with a zesty herb sauce in this delicious dish.

– 1 and ½ cups rice uncooked – ½ cup Chimichurri – 1 lb bag broccoli slaw or coleslaw mix about 6-8 cups – 1 tablespoon olive oil – 1 lb shrimp peeled and deveined




Cook the rice in a rice cooker or your preferred method as per package directions. For extra flavor, you can mix it with Chimichurri like in this rice recipe.

Prepare Rice



In a large bowl, mix together ¼ cup of the Chimichurri with the slaw vegetables.

Prepare Slaw



Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the raw shrimp in a medium layer and cook for 2-3 minutes, until cooked through. Once the shrimp cooks, toss them with in a small bowl with 2 tablespoons of Chimichurri sauce.

Cook Shrimp.



Simply place rice into a bowl, top with some sautéed shrimp, slaw, additional Chimichurri sauce (my favorite part!) and fresh herbs, as desired.



Change Up the Grain- If you'd like, you can use quinoa, farro or cauliflower rice (for a low carb option) instead. – Make it into a Salad- Or if you'd like to skip the base, a great option is to double the slaw and omit the rice. – Switch out the Protein-  Cook and shred 1 pound of chicken breast (about 2), toss it with 2 tablespoon of Chimichurri (like in these Chimichurri sandwiches) and use it in place of the shrimp.
