    • 1 cup (185g) brown rice
    • 1 2/3 cups (420ml) water
    • 3 tablespoons (60g) butter
    • 3 tablespoons (60ml) olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced

    1. Combine the brown rice and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook until all the water is absorbed, about 25 minutes.
    2. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a frypan over medium heat; cook the garlic in the butter and oil until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in the wine and lemon juice; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer.
    3. Stir in the prawns and cook until they turn pink, stirring regularly, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle the parsley over and cook another 2 minutes. Add the cornflour to the liquid and stir until it thickens, about 1 minute more. Serve hot over the brown rice.

    On a quest for a new shrimp dish once a week....this recipe was a delight! I added onion and also used cilantro. The Uncle Ben's Boil in a Bag Brown rice was the perfect amount for 1 lb of shrimp to feed 2. Double for 4. Thanks!  -  21 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
