This recipe is perfect for those who need a quick delicious meal that you can really make the most out of for the week. Straight out of his new cookbook The Red Rooster, celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson gives us the Double Dragon with grilled shrimp.

Ingredients For the Shrimp:

4 or 8 head-on, shell-on shrimp

Olive oil

Coarse kosher salt and freshly

ground black pepper

Smoked paprika

1 lime, quartered vertically

1 tablespoon chopped

fresh cilantro

Ingredients For the Rice:

1 cup jasmine rice

2 cups water

1 tablespoon rice powder

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

1 cup peanut oil

4 slices bacon, diced

2 poblano chiles, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon minced peeled ginger

1/2 teaspoon shrimp powder

Freshly ground black pepper

2 large eggs, beaten

Juice of 2 limes

1 tablespoon chopped kimchi


1 Cover the rice with cold water and soak overnight. 2 Drain the rice and put it in a saucepan with the water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cover, turn the heat down to low, and cook for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat. Put a kitchen towel over the pot, put the lid on tightly, and steam the rice for 10 minutes. Spread the rice out onto a rimmed baking sheet and cool completely. 3 Rinse the rice, separating all the kernels, and dry thoroughly on kitchen towels. 4 Combine the rice powder, brown sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Add half the rice and toss. 5 Heat the peanut oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When it is almost smoking, add the coated rice and stir-fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Drain the rice and spread it out on paper towels. 6 Combine the bacon, chiles, garlic, and ginger in a large skillet over medium heat and sauté until the bacon browns, about 10 minutes. Add the other half of the rice and the shrimp powder and cook, stirring, until the rice is hot. Taste for salt and pepper, then stir in the fried rice, eggs, lime juice, and kimchi. Take the skillet off the heat while you make the shrimp.


7 Rub the shrimp with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika. 8 Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. When it’s hot, grill the shrimp and lime for 3 minutes per side. The shrimp should be almost cooked through (residual heat will finish the job), and the lime should be charred. 9 Divide the rice between four plates. Top each serving with shrimp and a shower of cilantro and garnish with the grilled lime.
