Shrimps with rice. This easy recipe is loaded with flavor! Serve this one pot meal with salad for a light and easy everyday meal or as a first dish in a friendly or even a formal dinner.

Ingredients: 

1 kilo shrimps
½ cup of olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, crushed
2 cups of rice
1 cup of  dry white wine
4 cups broth from the shrimps
1 – 2 peeled tomatoes, finely chopped
½ bunch of parsley, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
salt, pepper
½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper (optionally)

Shell and devein the shrimps, leaving their tail on. Boil the heads of the shrimps in 4 cups of water for 4-5 minutes, strain and keep the broth. Heat the oil in a pot and saute chopped onions, garlic, green and red pepper and the parsley. Add shrimps , turning 2-3 times. Pour the wine, add the tomatoes, the broth from the shrimps, salt and pepper. Cook about 3-4 minutes more and then remove shrimps. Set aside and keep warm. Add the rice and let it boil until is tender. About 3 minutes before the rice is done, add the shrimps and stir carefully. Remove the pot from the heat and let stand until all liquid is absorbed.

Tip: 

If the rice absorb all of its liquid before it’s ready, add some more water, if necessary.


Shrimps do not need too much cooking/boiling because they become hard. That’s why we set them aside and add again a little before the end of cooking.

It's so tasty! I couldn't stop eating.... My visitors were surprised, better than the spanish paella ! What a pity, I could not find the Aegean sea's shrimps / nobody is perfect/ but your recipe only... many thanks, Charlotte Lumiere.
