Instructions

  • For the Cardamom Coconut Rice, bring coconut milk, water, cardamom and sea salt to boil in medium saucepan, stirring occasionally. Stir in rice. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 minutes or until rice is tender, stirring occasionally to prevent rice from sticking. Fluff rice with fork. Add green onions; toss gently to mix. Set aside, keeping warm

  • Meanwhile, for the Vanilla Beurre Blanc, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in small saucepan on medium heat. Add shallots; cook and stir 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in wine and sea salt. Split vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Scrape seeds into saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in cream. Return to simmer. Gradually add remaining cold butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking to form a creamy sauce. Stir in tomatoes

  • For the Shrimp, season shrimp with sea salt and pepper. Melt butter in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add shrimp; cook and stir 3 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink

  • To serve, place a 2-inch diameter biscuit cutter in the center of a small plate. Press 1/4 cup of the rice mixture into biscuit cutter to form a rice cake. Gently remove biscuit cutter. Top center of rice cake with 2 shrimp. Spoon 2 tablespoons beurre blanc over shrimp and around rice cake. Repeat with remaining rice, shrimp and beurre blanc
