I am super excited to share the recipe of shrimp simmered rice on Spice the Plate today.
The freshness of the ingredients is the key to this dish. What I usually do is to make this dish the same day after I finished grocery shopping.
To start making this dish, I sautéd the garlic, carrot and mushroom for about two minutes over medium heat until they are fragrant first.
Next, I poured about one cup of water into the pan. After the water has started to boil, I added the shrimps, green peas and tomato and cook under medium-high heat for about two minutes until the tomato has turned soft.
Then I added the cooked white rice (about one cup for one serving).
To be able to taste the natural flavors of the ingredients, I only used one teaspoon of salt and half tablespoon of soy sauce for seasoning. After adding the seasonings, I continued simmering for another two to three minutes before turning off the heat.
To add finishing touches to this dish, I added a touch of fresh cilantro on the top and drizzled with a touch of sesame oil.
With the hint of natural sour taste from the tomato, sweet taste from the green peas as well as nice delicate taste from shrimp and mushroom, this dish so full of flavorful!
