Cover and reduce to a simmer; cook until rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, and chili. In a small nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high. Add shrimp and cook until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and top with scallion greens and cilantro. Serve shrimp with scallion rice and soy-lime sauce for dipping.
