1 stalk of lemon grass, cut into 2-inch (5-cm) pieces or
Zest of half a lemon, cut into wide strips
Salt and ground pepper, to taste
1 cup (250 mL) long-grain rice
1 2/3 cups (410 mL) water
3 tbsp (45 mL) rum (optional)
1 cup (250 mL) black beans or
red kidney beans, canned, rinsed and drained
8 oz (225 g) medium-sized raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 Italian tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/3 cup (80 mL) jalapeno-flavoured Canadian Havarti, diced or shredded

Preparation

In a saucepan, melt the butter and sauté the garlic, onion and pepper 3 to 5 min. Add the pineapple, lemon grass and rice. Salt and pepper. Add water and rum, bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add the black beans, shrimp and tomatoes, and continue cooking for 3 to 5 minutes or until the shrimp are done.

Stir the rice well, season to taste and remove the lemon grass. Add the cheese, allow it to melt a little and serve immediately.

Tips

Suggestion: To enhance the flavour, sauted the shrimp in a little butter rather than adding them to the rice as it is cooking.

Note: You can prepare this dish in advance, but add the cheese just before serving.

Try it with Mozzarella, Provolone, Canadian Swiss, or other Cheddar, etc.
