Ingredients
For the Rice:
1 cup of Long Grain White Rice
3 Tbsp of Orzo Pasta
2 Tbsp of Broken Spaghetti
2 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter
2-34 cups of Chicken Stock
14 tsp of Dried Basil
1 tsp of Granulated Garlic
14 tsp of Paprika
Salt، to taste

For the Shrimp:
1-14 of Large Shrimp، shelled and deveined
2 tsp of Smoked Paprika
2 tsp of Regular Paprika
2 Cloves of Garlic، minced
2 Tbsp of Olive Oil
12 of a Thinly Sliced Yellow Onion
1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
Salt، to taste
Juice of 12 of a Lemon
Splash of Water
Fresh Chopped Parsley
Directions
1) Start by marinating the shrimp by tossing them with the olive oil، garlic، regular paprika، smoked paprika and salt، set them aside.

Switch to the pilaf. In a saucepan، add the butter and allow it to melt over medium heat، add the rice، orzo and broken spaghetti and cook for a couple of minutes while constantly stirring until they begin to toast، add the stock، paprika، basil and garlic، bring to a boil، cover with a lid، reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes or until the rice is cooked، adjust the seasoning to taste and set aside.

Move back to the shrimp، in a large skillet (I prefer my cast iron here) get it nice and hot over medium-high heat، add a drizzle of oil then in batches، cook the shrimp for about a minute on each side or until cooked، remove to a plate.

Add the onions with a little oil and any marinade from the shrimp and saute until they soften، add the shrimp back in along with about 14 cup of water، lemon juice and parsley and cook just for a minute on medium high heat.

Serve with some mixed greens and the pilaf and go to town!
