Recipe for family meals :

Solo Shrimp and Potato Pilaf

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. If you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

"The texture contrast between the smooth silky rice and the slightly crunchy mouth feel of the potatoes is an interesting experience. The Dill goes well with the potatoes and the Thyme replaces the traditional lemon flavor in giving the shrimp a nice kick. The onion gives this meal for one just a hint of sweetness. But remember Cooking is a Creative Sport".


1/3 cup uncooked rice
3/4 cup cooked shrimp (Tiny ones work the best)
1 cup diced potato (leave the skin on)
1/2 cup diced onions
2/3 cup chicken stock (Canned is fine)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon dill
1/2 teaspoon thyme

  • Heat the oil and butter in an 8 inch frying pan that has a tight fitting lid.
  • Sauté the onion until transparent.
  • Add the dill, thyme and rice and stir until all the rice grains are covered in the fat and spices.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, and cover with a tight fitting lid.
  • Reduce the heat to the minimum setting and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Do NOT remove the cover.
  • Take the pan off the heat and let it sit for another 15 minutes.
  • Serve with a salad or vegetable.
