Shrimp & Ham Bowls
Sound the sirens, alert alert - Perfect 10 according to the husband entering the house. You know what, totally agree with him. My man likes to take the leftovers out from under my nose, I did not allow this to happen with this recipe. Sometimes you just have to put the smack down ladies (sorry gents)!
4 tbs Butter
2 tbs Flour
1/2 tsp oregano
2 cups white onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 cups ham, cubed and cooked
2 cups diced tomatoes
1 cup uncooked rice
2-3 cups of chicken broth
2 cups shrimp, you can use fresh or frozen (thawed)
In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in flour until smooth. Stir in onions, garlic, and ham; cook and stir until onion is soft.
Stir in tomatoes, and cook for 5 minutes. Mix in oregano, rice, and broth. Cover, and simmer until just a little liquid remains.
Add shrimp and stir to evenly distribute. Cook for about 8 minutes or until rice and shrimp are both cooked.
