I always thought that making shrimps is funny. But I found out 2 years ago that it’s also simple.

Shrimps is a fresh and healthy sea food that goes so well with rice, that’s why I chose to make Shrimps on a curry rice bed.

Take a look at the ingredients:

  • Shrimps – 300 gr
  • Rice – 2 glass or 350 gr
  • Mushrooms – because they just go so well with the rice – 200 gr
  • Green beans – 200 gr
  • Butter for cooking shrimps - 1 cube
  • Olive oil for cooking rice and vegetables - 1 spoon
  • Fish sauce - 1 spoon
  • Rice vinegar - 2 spoons added on the rice only
  • Condiments: curry, parsley, basil, salt, lemon pepper and paprika
  • And lemon, of course

Instruments for this recipe:

  • Wok
  • 2 pots: one for preparing the rice and the other for preparing the vegetables

How I did it:

Step 1

preparing the shrimp: I let the shrimps defrost over night. After they were ready to be cooked I seasoned them with: salt, lemon pepper, parsley.

Step 2

cooking shrimp: I prepared the wok with butter and simply throw the shrimps in the wok. I can already sense the smell of crunchiness. I did not let them cook in the wok without supervision because shrimps cook quickly and they can easily be overcooked.

After 4 minutes once they were put in the wok I added a spoon of fish sauce. I left them 3 more minute and turned the on the other side and left them to cook properly for another 7 minutes, while supervising. After they were ready, I took them out on a plate. Smelled tasty and looked crunchy.

Step 3

preparing the vegetables: In a pot I put the vegetables, mushrooms and green beans and let them boil in water for about 10 minute. Added salt and pepper. At the same time I put the rice in the other pot and let it boil for 15- 20 minutes.

Step 4

last step for great vegetables: Once the vegetables are almost ready I drained the water and put the in the wok, after washing it and added a spoon of olive oil. I put in the wok the vegetables, added basil, parsley, paprika and let them cook, at small heat.

Step 5

getting the rice ready: While vegetables were getting ready, I prepared the rice. Drained the water, put it in a bowl and seasoned it: curry, salt, lemon pepper and rice vinegar. Mixed it all and added the rice in the wok, to cook along with the vegetables for another 5 minutes.

Step 6

plating: On a beautiful, rectangle plate I put rice and vegetables and on this bed of rice I added the shrimps.

Finished with a squashed lemon over the dish.
