Shrimp and Rice Recipes – Shrimp & Turmeric Rice

Turmeric rice is very, very tasty. Turmeric is also very healthy as it is a known antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic. It is known as the golden spice of India and will turn your rice into a beautiful deep, yellow color.

Here is what you need for this recipe:
1 cup white rice
1 cup vermicelli cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 TBS butter
3 cups chicken stock
1 TBS turmeric
1/2 cup thawed peas
1/2 cup thawed corn
8 large shrimp
8 asparagus stalks, trimmed
Salt & Pepper

Melt the butter in a heavy pot. Add the rice and vermicelli and saute for 5 to 7 minutes until lightly browned. Add the turmeric and mix well. Add the chicken stock, peas and corn. Mix well.

Bring pot to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Cook for 15 minutes. Add the shrimp and asparagus. Cover and cook for an extra 5 minutes until rice is cooked and liquid is completely evaporated.

Serve the rice in a platter and arrange the shrimp and asparagus nicely on top. Enjoy!
