Shrimp & Clam Perloo


Description for Shrimp & Clam Perloo

Perloo is a classic low country rice dish which falls somewhere between a jambalayah and red rice. The dish is brimming with rich low country flavors. We use fresh local shrimp and clam in ours. The dish starts with country ham, celery, onions, smoked sausage, peppers, garlic and tomatoes. We then add our seafood and tomato fumet which is essentially a flavorful stock that we make using the shrimp heads and fish skin we have left over from cleaning our local seafood. Next we add fresh herbs and seasoning to the broth and allow it to simmer so the flavors can fully develop. We then bring the dish to a boil and add our rice and clams. When the rice is nearly cooked we add our shrimp and after two to three minutes it''s ready to serve with some thinly sliced green onions, finely grated romano, freshly ground black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil.
