Kitchen! Kitchen! .....Get out of the Box..Shrimps with Pesto over Pesto Rice...

Remember what I said about getting out of the box? 
... Well this is it!

What do I need?
  • About 10-12 pieces of medium large shrimps, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Pesto sauce ( see my recipe on pesto sauce posted earlier)
  • 2 cups of rice cooked in a rice cooker. (2 cups of rice to 2-1/2 cups of water).
  • Boston lettuce for garnish

Heat oil in a pan add the shrimps sprinkle with a pinch of salt, stir until shrimps starts to "blush".  About 4-5 minutes.  Remove from the heat and add 3-4 tablespoons of the pesto sauce and mix thoroughly.  In the meantime, transfer your steaming hot cooked rice to a bowl, add about 4-5 tablespoons of pesto sauce and a pinch of salt.  Mix thoroughly.  Transfer into your fabulous serving platter garnish with Boston lettuce and spread the pesto rice carefully and get those pesto blushing shrimps and top the rice with it.  Lovely!
