Smoked-Rice Salad

Has anyone tried cooking with smoked rice? If not, I would like to encourage you to give it a try. The rice has an unique smoky flavor and it tastes fantastic. I made this Smoked Rice Salad with shrimp, peppers, cucumbers, scallions, scallions, and lime juice dressing. This salad can be served at room temperature or cold, straight from the fridge. It's a colorful and fresh clean-tasting salad which is I am sure you will enjoy!

Smoked-Rice Salad


1 ½ Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Yellow Onion, finely chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
2 Cups (400g) Smoked Long Grain Rice
600 ml Chicken Stock

250 g Frozen Cooked Shrimps, thawed
4 Mixed Colors Bell Peppers, small diced
2 Japanese Cucumbers, small diced
2 Serrano Chilies, seeded and finely sliced
3 Stalks Scallions, finely sliced
5 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Corianders

Lime Juice Dressing
Juice of 1 ½ Lime
1 tsp Ground Cumin
3 to 4 Tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the onion and garlic on moderate heat until sticky, fragrant, and golden in color. Then add the rice, give it a good stir, and season with sea salt and pepper. Transfer the rice into a rice cooker, add chicken stock and cook as per the cooker instructions.

Meanwhile, combine the shrimps, peppers, cucumber, chilies, scallions, coriander, and the lime juice dressing in a large mixing bowl. Fluff the cooked rice and toss into the vegetable and shrimp mixtures. Stir the rice salad well, and season with salt and pepper, if necessary.
