Shrimp Over Rice

This soup is quick, easy and delicious. It starts with a simple roux to which you add shrimp, onions, garlic, parsley and a dash of paprika. Serve it over cooked rice for a hearty meal on a cold winter day.



Start by making a roux. Melt the butter in a large skillet, add the flour and cook until brown.

Add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Stirring continuously, cook until these are transparent.

Add the shrimp and 1 cup of water. Cook until the shrimp are done. They will turn pinkish and curl.

Add the chopped parsley and green onions.

Season with salt, pepper and paprika to suit your tastes.

Serve over cooked rice.


Time to prepare: 40 minutes.

Serves 6 to 8.

    This is very similar to one of my favorite recipes, Shrimp Stew and Rice. Just add a diced green bell pepper with the onions and add two small cans of tomato sauce and a bay leaf once the onions and bell peppers are transparent.
    Easy and delicious.
