Shrimp and Rice Recipes

Spanish Garlic Shrimp is one of the many dishes originating from traditional Spanish cuisine. The dish is likely to have come from the Andalusia region in the south where it is a popular recipe to this day. Not only is this dish rich in both flavor and tradition, it’s also quick and easy to make!  With Minute® Rice, you will not run out of seafood recipes to choose from any time soon! One that’s definitely worth a try is this Shrimp Jambalaya where the flavors and traditions of New Orleans give you a tasty and satisfying meal time! To know if the shrimp is fully cooked for your shrimp recipes, firstly it’s best to look at the color. Shrimp should be a slightly pink and opaque color. Also, the shrimp should be firm enough to curl without constriction. If they’re roughly in the shape of a letter ‘c’, that’s a great sign!

How is White Wine Used in Cooking?

A dash of white wine adds a little extra acidity and flavor to a number of dishes, but it has to be added to the right kind of food. Typically, it makes a great addition to seafood in general, many kinds of fish, recipes with poultry, and even some dairy products. In Spanish Garlic Shrimp, white wine gives it an extra flavorful kick to make it even more delicious.
