Japanese Rice With Shrimp and Vegetables

Total Time

This is a delicious rice recipe with such a wonderful flavour to it. I like this dish very much! : ) I couldn't find dashi stock so I used miso soup instead. And if you don't want to use fresh shrimp you can use precooked peeled shrimp. Just add them in the last minute of cooking to heat through.

I loved this!!It is the unltimate Japanese comfort food; in Japanese this would be called zosui I felt like I was back in Tokyo, and I went to my grandma's for dinner. I added a tablespoon of sake to the mix. Also, instead of peppers and snow peas, I just added shelled cooked edamame at the end. Along with shrimp I thew in some nice scallops. OMG this was so good! Thanks for posting this and reminding me of my heritage.

I like this! It was just flavourful enough. I didn't have red pepper, so I had to sub with different vegetables such as broccoli and some spinach. Great recipe, and thanks for sharing. :)
