Roasted Shrimp Over Creamy Rice

Another easy 20 minute dish for you today! This creamy rice is reminiscent of a risotto, only much easier and much healthier too! 

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 cup arborio rice
1 cup white wine
salt and pepper
1 pound shrimp, peeled
1 pint grape tomatoes
1 clove garlic, minced
8 springs fresh thyme 
1/4 cup fresh parmesan shavings

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Heat 1/2 your oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, cook your onion until translucent (about 5 minutes). Add the wine and rice and cook on medium high heat until the wine is absorbed, this should take about 2 minutes. Add your water and 1/2 tsp of salt and pepper to your pan. Cover and simmer until the liquid is absorbed, should take just under 20 minutes. While your rice is cooking, toss your shrimp with oil, salt, pepper, the tomatoes, thyme, and garlic. Roast them on a baking sheet in the oven until the shrimp are pink and cooked through, about 15 minutes. When your rice is done, mix in a little parm or sprinkle it on top as a garnish, serve your shrimp on top of the rice. 

Lovely, easy, with nice flavor combinations. What more could you want for a great weeknight meal?
