  • Summary

    Taking a cue from the Venetian risi e bisi, a soupy rice-and-peas, this version with shrimp highlights sweet, crunchy sugar snap peas with Southeast Asian ingredients: the heat of chiles and ginger, the freshness of basil and cilantro, and the salty depth of fish sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 1 clove garlic
    • 3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger (from a 4-inch piece)
    • 1 to 2 Thai chiles, or 1 small serrano chile, chopped
    • 1 cup packed tender fresh basil leaves, plus more for serving
    • 1 cup packed fresh cilantro, plus more leaves for serving
    • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 large or 2 small leeks, thinly sliced and well washed (2 cups)
    • 1/2 cup long-grain white rice
    • 3 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken broth
    • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
    • 4 ounces sugar snap peas, tough strings removed, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces (1 1/2 cups)
