Shrimp Pilaf


Read From The Bottom Up.


I then added the shrimp to the hot rice and let them cook in the heat. This prevents them from overcooking during the cooking process. Served with a tomato sauce and a squeeze of lime or lemon, this is a delicous meal or a great appetizer for a dinner party as it can be prepared in advance.

Then I added a cup of plain rice and cooked it well in the vegetables and olive oil and then added the seasoning, a couple of bay leaves and thyme and a quarter of a lemon. I added water at double the amount of rice so that the pilaf would be nice and moist. I let that cook slowly for about 15 mins. or so. I brought it to a boil and then let it finish slowly.
For this I used a bit of a clean out the fridge process. I chopped up onion, sweet red peppers, zucchini, carrot, mushroom, asparagus and a little tomato and I sauteed them with olive oil and added lots of garlic.

Hi Jim, food looks gorgeous but my message is to Dudley. Looked at his video and want him to say hi to the Schnautzer he meets in the park. My guy Struppi has sadly gone to the dog heaven in the sky but you never know maybe duds friend might be on his blog. Hope you get no 14. can I join twice?
