|Cajun Shrimp Pilau Pilaf, a quick and easy main dish shrimp and rice dish.|
Cajun Shrimp PilafNow, this is a rice cooker recipe that goes way back and that's just frankly how I've always known it to be made. With rice a predominant menu feature in this part of The South, rice cookers of some form are very common in the southern coastal states.
This dish is so easy, it's ridiculous. To make it a true pilau, the rice should be cooked in a skillet first. Just add the butter to the skillet and melt it, then add the rice, cooking and stirring it for about 5 minutes (you can saute the veggies here too if you prefer) before adding to the rice cooker. Add everything else and mix.
