Shrimp Perloo (pronounced perlow) is a classic low country dish from the South that combines rice and either shrimp, chicken, sausages, bacon, oysters or a combination, and is cooked in one pot. You can use a combination of peppers and if you don’t like green peppers, you can use red or yellow peppers. I used mainly green peppers and added a little red pepper. If you have a chorizo sausage or hot Italian sausage, you can sauté slices and add it to the dish while it is cooking. A can of crushed tomatoes gives the dish a wonderful depth of flavor. This dish uses Bomba or Valencia rice which is a traditional Spanish rice used in paella and can be found in gourmet stores. It is a short, starchy grained rice and gives a creamy finish to the dish. You can also use arborio or long grained rice. I only buy frozen shrimp so I know it is fresh and hasn’t been sitting on ice at the grocery store for who knows how long. This dish is a 30 minute meal and is full of flavor and nice and hearty. Click here for the recipe….
