Yellow Rice with Dried Shrimp

Yellow rice with dried shrimp recipe, this aromatic and mild dish is a great side dish to pair with your favorite meat, poultry, or seafood entree or to enjoy as a main course.

Rice with dried shrimp is a popular dish in many regions of the world. It’s delicious and served as a side dish, but I also love it as a main course. It’s very easy to make at home, and you can customize it however you like by adding more or less spice and protein or by making changes to the herbs and spices that go into it. You can also make it with yellow, white, or brown rice.

You may be thinking that this recipe for yellow rice with dried shrimp was inspired by Chinese cuisine. It was not! Growing up in Haiti, I used to eat this dish very often. My father used to make all types of rice recipes with vegetables and dried or salted seafood. We used to call it rice with tri-tri (dried shrimp).

It’s a simple dish that’s easy to make and goes great with any Caribbean entree. I use yellow jasmine rice, but I often make it with jasmine white rice. You can also make it with basmati rice, but the flavors are not the same. Jasmine rice is best to cook Caribbean rice recipes in my opinion.

This flavorful dish will come together in just under 60 minutes, and your family will love it!
