10 Minute Shrimp Rice Bowl for One

I came up with this while on a 30-Day Detox. I needed to be creative with foods that I was allowed (and not allowed), and this is what I've come up with. Amounts are approximate, I eyeballed everything. Cooking time and prep time does not include cooking rice as I use Plain Rice -- Make Ahead OAMC Throw It in the Freezer!! - #159839. Omit the shrimp or replace with tofu for a vegetarian dish. I have also substituted other veg for the broccoli. I have tried asparagus and red peppers. I think tonight I will have it with peas. Tip: Add a bit of water to deglaze the pan during cooking if the vinegar isn't enough or if things start to stick, I find it also helps distribute the flavours a bit.
