Today, we’re going to be doing some MacGyver. We’re going to cook with the coffee pot, but the best part is no one will ever know because the food is going to be that good.
All right, so the dish we are making today is a chili pepper paprika spiced shrimp with lime and cilantro and rice. It’s going to be super dough. This is how it works.
We need to start working on our rice. So we’re going to use about a ¼ of a cup of rice. Squeeze let’s say for this amount, like half. Now, a little bit of salt and pepper. This is actually a really funny dish. I learned to make it when I was in college and it doesn’t really have much to work with. And so, they have a whole lot of money. So we kind of did with what we have. On the top are fresh cilantro. I like the big pieces of cilantro, I think that flavor is really awesome especially with that lime in there, and throw that in as well.
All right, here is the fun part. Pop it right on the coffee pot. ¼ cup of water, and it’s going to brew just like coffee. We’re cooking. You know what I'm talking about. All right now, for the shrimp, this is pretty simple as well. So we’re going take five fresh shrimp. We’re going to have a little bit of salt and pepper. And we’re using some chilly powder. Chilly powder is one of my favorite spices. I just think it’s got that plunge, I like spicy food. So we’re going to have like a teaspoon or so. I'm getting two teaspoons chilly powder and some paprika and a touch of olive oil. Make sure you coat the shrimp on all sides. And we’re going to sit just for a minute and as soon as that water is down brewing, we’re going to pull it off and then we’re going to get going with our shrimp.
All right, so now the rice is done, so we’re going to pull it out nice and steamy on the inside. You know what I'm talking about? All right, now, our hot player over here is nice and smokey. So we’re going to take pair of tongs, we’re going to go with our shrimp right over here. So leave those for about six or seven minutes. All right, there it go, they’re working. Really do this for like let’s say four or five minutes on each side. You’re going to hear it start to sizzling, you see it cooling across. So we’re just going to give them a flip. This smells so good right now. That chilly and paprika really lights up on the heat of the coffee pot.
Check that out. That is what I'm talking about. Get it nice and toasty, a little bit of caramelization on there. And don’t worry, your coffee is not going to taste like shrimp. All right, so our shrimp is all finished, so let’s plate it up. I'm using a nice cool blue plates. I think it’s going to play with the colors nicely. So we’re going to start with our rice, our cilantro lime infused rice and then serve in the plate like so.
Unfortunately, with this dish, you can’t cook for a whole bunch of people, but it’s good if you are cooking for yourself or maybe you and your lady. If you want to impress her on the budget, you know what I'm talking about. We’re ready to go with our shrimp right over the top and then we’re going to garnish it with a little bit of fresh lime. So we’ll just squeeze right at the top, here and then small little garnish of cilantro.
There you go, it’s pretty much that easy. We have our lime and cilantro infused rice with our chili paprika spice shrimp. Check it out.
