- 4 slices thick-cut bacon
- 1 lb peeled shrimp
- 1 shallot, minced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 jalapeño, seeded and minced
- 1 cup fresh corn kernels
- 4 cups cooked rice
- 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
- 2 green onions, sliced
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until it is golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the bacon and continue to cook until the bacon is crisp, about 2 to 3 mintues. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set it aside.
Arrange the shrimp in the skillet and cook until it turns pink, about 2 minutes. Flip the shrimp and continue to cook until they are completely pink and opaque, about 1 to 2 mintues. Tansfer the shrimp into a clean bowl and set it aside.
Add the shallot, garlic, and jalapeño to the skillet. Cook, stirring, until they are fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the corn, and cook, stirring occasionally, until it is bright yellow, about 2 minutes. Stir in the rice and arrange the mixture into an even layer. Continue to cook, without stirring, until the rice begins to brown, about 5 minutes. While the rice is cooking, chop the bacon. Once the rice begins to brown, stir the mixture and press it back down into an even layer. Continue to cook, without stirring, until the rice is golden, about 3 minutes. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the bacon.
Serve immediately topped with cherry tomatoes, cooked shrimp, and green onion. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
