This is a common rice and shrimp dish called a "pilafi" (pilaf). It's very tasty. I got it from my Yiaya Sophie. Very easy and simple.
- 1⁄2 lb shrimp (uncooked)
- chicken broth (canned is fine)
- 1⁄2 tablespoon fresh dill
- 1⁄2 cup chopped celery
Directions See How It's Made
- Brown a small amount of butter in a large saucepan. Toss in shrimp with shells on (if there's a little extra juice with the shrimp, let it drip in too). When shrimp begin to turn opaque, remove from pan, allow to cool, and then peel. Meanwhile, toss 1/4 of the rice into buttery pan and mix for 2 minutes. Add enough broth to cook all the rice, as well as the celery and dill. Bring to simmer and cover. Simmer until rice is cooked. Add shrimp for a minute or so, until they are tender but fully cooked. Eat!
- Cook shrimp at the beginning, to get their juice in the pan. Then REMOVE. Add again at the end. If you leave them in the whole time they will be really tough.
