Spanish Shrimp Rice

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

After eating this dish I can guarantee that you'll be very satisfied! I love one pot meals since it's so easy to make it. Take a look:

Recipe slightly adapted from here.

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
2 roma tomatoes, diced
2 small carrots, diced
1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 1/2 cups white rice
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
4 hard boiled eggs, sliced
Salt and black pepper

In a large pan, heat the oil over medium/high heat. Add the onions, garlic and turmeric and cook until onions are soft. Add the tomatoes and carrots, cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Add the shrimp and cook until they begin to turn pink. Add the rice and pour 2 cups water, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium/low, cover and let it simmer until rice is tender and water gone (about 15-20 minutes). Remove from heat, add the peas on the top and cover again, let stand 5 minutes. Fluff the rice with fork to incorporate peas. Arrange hard boiled egg slices over the top. Serve hot and with some hot sauce. Enjoy!
