Simple and Delicious Meal that makes happy and healthy bodies! Tangy tomatoes meet rich sweet shrimp with savory bacon with rice! Yummie stuff!

Laura and Jay's Mom

Serves/Makes:4 or more

  • 6 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2-1/2 cups (600 ml) canned plum tomatoes
  • 1 cup (225 ml) uncooked white rice
  • 2 cups (475 ml) shrimp, cooked
  • Fry bacon in a large skillet until crisp.
  • Remove cooked bacon, set aside and keep fat in the skillet.
  • Add onions to the bacon fat and stir until cooked, but not caramelized (browned).
  • Heat tomatoes in top of double boiler, add bacon and the onion mixture with most of the fat.
  • Blend.
  • Add Rice and cook for 45 minutes.
  • Place the shrimp on the bottom of a buttered oven proof casserole dish.
  • Carefully put the hot tomato and rice mixture on top of the shrimp.
  • Bake at 375 degrees (200 C.) for 20 minutes.
This is especially good with a cold crisp salad of greens with mandarin oranges and walnuts and a sweet vinaigrette and a light flavorful yeast recipe of a grits muffin!

Pilau is a Southeastern US dish. I got this recipe from a Savannah, GA friend who swears it is the Soul Food of Savannah! Don't mention that to my friend from Charleston, SC!! She will fight you for the rights to authentic Pilau too!
