Chicken & Shrimp Perloo With Wild Grain

Ingredients for 8 shrimp perloo servings

* Optional Substitution Note

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 (red) bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium (yellow) onion, diced
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 2 1/2 cups uncooked long-grain wild rice (OR long grain brown rice)
  • 1 can (14.5oz or 411g) no salt added canned diced tomatoes
  • 1lb Rotisserie chicken meat, NO skin and chopped
  • 1lb raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3 cups no salt-added chicken broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • Garnish
    • fresh parsley


Step 1

Set a large pot on medium heat.   Once hot, add oil, garlic, onion, celery, bell pepper and carrot.  Cook for 6 – 8 minutes, or until the veggies have browned and the onions are semi translucen

Step 2

Add smoked paprika, rice and tomatoes.  Stir well, ensuring every grain of rice is covered, and cook until all the liquid from the tomatoes has evaporated, leaving a stickier and thicker consistency, about 3 minutes.

Step 3

Add chicken and the jumbo shrimp, stir, then add the chicken broth and bay leaves.  Bring to a gentle simmer, reduce the heat, then cover and cook for about 35 – 40 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed.  Add tablespoons of broth or water if needed.

Step 4

Garnish and enjoy with side salad! I made a mixed spinach, arugula and fennel salad with mustard vinaigrette.

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
