Sort of a leftover night, with turkey a la king from leftover two-days-after-Thanksgiving turkey and homemade turkey stock, over leftover rice.

Here's where I placed the recipe after I tried Nigella's.
It' from her Nigella Express show. Also, I doubled it so it would make more, and have now made 4 batches. Yesterdays was by far the best and they've all been perfect, and the best thing is, it couldn't be easier to make.
I topped mine off yesterday with chocolate carmel chips and shaved bittersweet that I dropped on faster than the Lone Ranger rides Silver so they plopped onto the hokey pokey and sunk into the brown velvet molten volcano, disappeared and this stuff is pure heaven.
Today, I'm off to FE to ship out a box of it to a lady I met who's a caterer. She's sending me her pralines, I'm sending her my hokey pokey. Hope she likes it.

Hi Buckeytom

What we call prawns here you call shrimp - we only call the smallest shrimp you get (eg which you will use for potted shrimp) - shrimp. The Portugese rice recipe is as follows:
Olive Oil
1 onion finely choppped
30ml fresh parsley
1 clove garlic , crushed
250ml rice
15ml tomato paste
salt & milled black pepper
375ml water

Heat olive oil & fry onion,add parsley,garlic,rice&tomato paste,season w/ salt&pepper, then add water.Cover&simmer for about 15 min until rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed.

I found I had to add more liquid to above recipe - added about 250ml white wine
