“This is a tasty, colorful dish that is nice for dinner guests. I like to serve this with garlic bread and a green salad. Recipe is from a Sunset cookbook.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a deep, heavy 4-5 quart pan over medium heat; add shrimp and cook, stirring, until almost opaque throughout, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Lift out and set aside (shrimp will get more cooking time later).
  3. Pour pan juices into a 1-quart measuring cup; add clam juice and enough water to make 2 1/2 cups, set aside.
  4. Melt remaining 1/4 cup butter in pan over medium heat; add onion and garlic, cook, stirring often, until onion is soft, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add rice and turmeric; cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes, add celery, salt, pepper and clam juice mixture.
  6. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until rice is almost tender to bite, about 15 minutes.
  7. With a fork, lightly mix tomatoes and peas into rice; scatter shrimp over top, cover and continue to cook until rice is tender to bite and liquid is absorbed, about 10 more minutes.
  8. Sprinkle with parsley.
