A Gilding of Shrimp & Saffron Rice

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/a_gilding_of_shrimp_saffron_rice.html

From EatingWell:  August/September 2006

Golden saffron and a bounty of herbs and summer vegetables make this a beautiful and fresh-tasting dish. Don't overseason; let the flavors sing.

4 servings, 1 1/2 cups saute & 1 cup rice each | Active Time: 40 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Bring water, 1/2 teaspoon salt and saffron to taste to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add rice, return to a boil, cover and reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  2. About 10 minutes before the rice is done, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add squash and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender (do not brown), 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in shrimp and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Stir in mint and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in lemon juice; remove from heat. Season with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Serve over the rice.
