A note about serious food allergies
Shrimp are the little crustaceans that could: they go with everything cuisine, can be put with rice, pasta, and most of your starches (maybe not mashed potato… weird), and they accomplish all this while being… shrimp. Size doesn't matter for flavor, and this meal proves it, with shrimp adorned by a tomatillo salsa of spicy, creamy perfection. Go, go little guys; we're rooting for ya! Tip: Easier way to mince cilantro? Gather them all in one hand and lay on the cutting board. Use your knife in a rocking motion to cut, then turn 90 degrees and repeat until the herbs are properly minced!
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a

sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Cook the Rice
Mince cilantro (no need to stem).
Bring a small pot with rice, 1 ½ cups water, garlic, and a pinch of *salt to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.

Remove husks from tomatillos, rinse again, and cut into ½" dice.
Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into thin strips.
Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.
Stem jalapeño, halve, seed, remove ribs, and mince. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.
Pat shrimp dry.
Make the Salsa Verde
Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in another small pot over medium-high heat. Add tomatillo, jalapeño (use less if spice-averse), and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pot. Stir occasionally until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
Add ½ cup water and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until liquid is reduced by half, 3-5 minutes.
After liquid is reduced by half, mash until vegetables form the consistency of a chunky salsa.
Remove from burner. Stir in sour cream and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cover and set aside.
