Ivorian Jollof Rice with Grilled Shrimp & Homemade Slaw
Chef Veronique's Jollof Rice is packed full of flavor! Jollof rice is a dish found in many West African countries and in some French-speaking areas, this dish is sometimes called riz au gras. Jollof rice is incredibly diverse, taking on different flavors and preparation styles depending on the region. With Chef Veronique's jollof rice, she starts by seasoning and cooking the rice in a single pot with blended aromatics. The key to the dish is adding the perfect amount of tomato puree for its color and tangy flavor. Once the rice is cooked, she mixes in perfectly grilled shrimp. On the side is Chef Veronique's homemade slaw of shredded carrots, cabbage, and cucumbers. The dish is the perfect balance of textures and flavors! The jollof rice is tangy, complementing the savory, charred flavor of the shrimp, and the slaw adds a refreshing and crunchy texture.
