Slow and low simmering

After you’ve got the initial sautéing and flavors built, you’ll add all the liquids and rice, and cook the dish covered for close to an hour. Once its thick and homogenous and the rice is cooked through- you’ll add the shrimp. Simply stir the shrimp in and cook covered on low for about 3-4 minutes.
