 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Butter
  • 2 tb Minced shallots
  • 1/4 ts Saffron threads, steeped in
  • -2 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 3/4 c Homemade chicken broth
  • 1 c Orzo pasta

Saute the shallot in butter for 5 minutes or until tender. Add the steeped
saffron in white wine and evaporate. Add the orzo and saute just enough to
coat the pasta kernels.

Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil and cook until the pasta has
absorbed the broth, and is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the shrimp,
cover and steep just long enough for the shrimp to gently warm through.
Season to taste with salt and crushed red pepper; garnish with parsley.
