Helpful hints

  • Uncle Ben's® converted white rice is a popular brand. Converted rice, also know as parboiled rice, is steamed before it is husked. As a result the kernals absorb nutrients from the husk and the rice cooks more quickly.
  • 1 stick of butter or margarine is equal to 1/2 cup.
  • For variation, try substituting cooked cubed chicken for shrimp.
