1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 pound large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 small red onion, chopped

2 ounces finely chopped Canadian bacon (about ⅓ cup)

cup fine egg noodles, broken up

cup instant brown rice

cup dry white wine

1 cup frozen shelled edamame

1 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

Salt and ground black pepper

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, plus more to garnish

Light a charcoal fire or heat a gas grill to high.

In a bowl, whisk together 2 teaspoons of the olive oil and the lemon juice. Add the shrimp, toss to coat, then set aside.

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the onion and bacon and saute until the onion becomes translucent, about 2 minutes.

Add the noodles and rice and cook, stirring often, until the noodles begin to brown, about 3 minutes. Add the wine and cook, stirring constantly, until the wine has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add the edamame and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, thread the shrimp onto 4 bamboo or metal skewers. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Grill, until the shrimp are pink and firm, about 1 minutes per side.

Remove the pilaf from the heat and let stand, covered, for 3 minutes. Stir in the dill and season with pepper. Serve the pilaf topped with shrimp on or off the skewers. Garnish with additional dill, if desired.

Serves four.
