Butter Curry Prawns with Almond Rice Pilaf

  • 1 1/2 pounds large Shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tbsp. Butter
  • 1 cup Basmati Rice (available in store at Well Seasoned)
  • 1 small Shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup frozen Green Peas
  • 1 tbsp. Well Seasoned Olive Oil
  • 4 tbsp. fresh Cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. sliced Almonds toasted (plus more for garnish, optional)
  • 1/2 a container of Chef Carl's Gourmet to Go "Butter Sauce" (or more if you want it extra saucy) (available in store at Well Seasoned)
  1. In a medium sized skillet over medium high heat, melt the butter and cook the prawns until just barely cooked. Add the butter sauce & frozen peas and simmer until the sauce is hot and the prawns are cooked. Remove from the heat and stir in half the cilantro.
  2. For the rice: In a small sauce pan, saute the chopped shallot in 1 tbsp. olive oil. When the shallot is translucent but not brown, add the rice. Stir the rice in the hot oil and onion until the rice starts to toast. Add 1 3/4 cup of water to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Add the rice and stir. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, cover and steam until cooked through. Stir in the toasted almonds and season with salt & pepper, right before serving.
  3. To serve: Place a generous serving of rice on the plate and top with the butter prawns. Garnish with the rest of the cilantro and additional toasted almonds. Serve with oven roasted cauliflower.
