1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 tomato, diced
1/2 lime or lime juice
1/2 tablespoon cilantro
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1.5 teaspoons of soy sauce (ideally low sodium)

The Cilantro Lime Rice
Add 1/2 cup of water to your saucepan and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, add in the 1/4 cup of brown rice, lime juice, and cilantro. Lower heat to a simmer, and cover until cooked (20-30 minutes)
Dry your shrimp with a paper towel and then season with a dash of salt, paprika, crushed red pepper, and garlic powder.
Add a tablespoon of olive oil to your frying pan and bring to medium heat.
Once warm add your shrimp to the pan. Cook on each side for 3 minutes.
Take 1/3 an avocado and dice it to small cubes and add to a bowl.
Add the diced onion and tomato to the bowl with avocado. Add one dash of salt to the top. Using a fork, mash and mix together to a desired consistency. The more you mix the creamier the texture.
Bringing it All Together
Once everything is ready, plate the rice followed by the shrimp and top with the guacamole.
