  1. First, make Lebanese rice according this recipe. Leave covered and undisturbed until ready to serve. Alternatively, you can make brown or white rice according to store-bought package. (Optional)
  2. Pat shrimp dry and place it in a large bowl. Add flour, smoked paprika, salt and pepper,  coriander, cayenne, and sugar. Toss until shrimp is well-coated.
  3. In a large cast iron skillet, melt the butter with the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring regularly, until fragrant. Add bell peppers. Cook another 4 minutes or so, tossing occasionally.
  4. Now add the shrimp. Cook for 2 minutes, then add the diced tomatoes, broth, white wine and lemon juice. Cook for 5-6 minutes until shrimp turns bright orange. Finally, stir in chopped fresh parsley.
  5. Serve immediately with cooked rice.
