  • Water
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil (for stir fry)
  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 Tbs bottled Thai sweet chili sauce plus additional for topping
  • 1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 12 whole large leaves, bibb or iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup matchstick cut or shredded carrots

Directions

  • Combine reserved mandarin orange juice with enough water to equal 2 cups liquid. Bring juice mixture, 1 teaspoon oil and salt to boil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in rice; cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir mandarin oranges and sweet chili sauce into cooked rice.
