Spicy Shrimp and Rice
1 cup rice
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cup stock (chicken or seafood)
salt to taste
1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 clove garlic
1/2 shallotpinch of red chili flakes
Melt 1 1/2 tablespoon butter in a medium pot. Once melted add rice and stir until slightly toasted, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle rice with salt and then add stock. Bring to boil and then reduce to simmer for 20(ish) minutes, or until rice is cooked to desired tenderness.
Finely chop garlic and shallot. Melt remaining butter in medium sauce pan. Add garlic and shallot and stir until softened, about 2 minutes. Add chili flakes and shrimp and a pinch of salt. Once shrimp has started to curl into a C shape, remove from heat. (if it turns into a full O shape, it's overcooked.) Top with cilantro and serve over rice.
