“Several years ago, I misplaced my recipe for Pistachio Rice. It is a terrific side dish for pan seared scallops. I found this version online at the New York Times site (Originally published with 60-MINUTE GOURMET By Pierre Franey ) It is very close to my missing recipe. My recipe did not use a bay leaf so I think this could be optional for those who do not care for the taste. Also, if you have to shell your own pistachios add more prep time. I have seen pre-shelled pistachios in several grocery stores. If you can find them, that would be a big prep time saver.”
