Portuguese-style Shrimp & Rice with Steam Whistle

Created by Josanna Meilhac-Lavigne, an aspiring Chef at Liaison College, Toronto. Liaison College trains the largest number of cooks and chefs in Ontario.


In a sauce pan combine the rice, water, Steam Whistle and salt. Simmer until ready and then, leave covered, off heat, to steam further.

In a large saute pan, heat olive oil. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add minced garlic and parsley, stirring for 30 seconds. Add crusted pimento and cook 2 minutes. Add Steam Whistle Pilsner and the shrimps, cooking until the shrimp are pink. Serve over rice.

Note: you may wish to add chili's if you like spicey food, or have some hot sauce handy while eating. Steam Whistle Pilsner is a perfect accompanying beverage for savoury dishes like this one!
