Something crazy happens when you make shrimp spicy. Mix them together with spices like paprika, cumin, ginger, and cayenne, then add the freshness of flat-leaf parsley or cilantro and they realize it’s a party. They start to dance to music only shrimp ears can hear.
It’s true!* When making this spicy shrimp and rice, mix your seasonings and see if you can spot that epic shrimp shimmy. They’re pretty shy, these little crustaceans, so you might have to leave the kitchen and peek around the corner to bear witness.
Whether you see it or not, rest assured that this combo of warming spices, fluffy jasmine rice, and bright lemon juice makes shrimp party their tiny pants off—and you just might find yourself dancing, too.
This spicy shrimp recipe comes to us directly from our jasmine rice producer, Michael Bosworth! Learn more about how we partnered with him to bring his barely broken White Jasmine Rice to you.
