Kelly Bland, from the UK Cooperative Extension Office, is back for another edition of What's Cookin'? here on WBKR.  This week, she's "plating up" a healthy, delicious and cost-conscious recipe that is perfect for shrimp lovers.  Here's how to make the UK Cooperative Extension Service's Shrimp Burrito Bowl.


• 1 pound mini shrimp, cooked and thawed

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 (14.5 ounce) can yellow corn,drained or 1 1/2 cup fresh corn kernels

2 cups cooked brown rice

1 avocado, chopped

½ small red onion, diced

1 (14.5 ounce) can low-sodium black beans, drained

½ cup Greek yogurt

½ cup salsa


1. In a medium bowl, combine shrimp,chili powder, garlic powder and salt.

2. Heat olive oil in a medium sized skillet over medium heat and add coated shrimp. Cook until warmed through and flesh is white, about 2-3 minutes. *If using fresh corn kernels, add with the shrimp to heat.

3. Using shrimp, corn, rice, avocado, onion and black beans, assemble each serving in a separate bowl.

4. In a small bowl, mix together Greek yogurt and salsa. A small amount of water can be added for a thinner consistency. Pour over prepared bowls.
