Source: Burt Wolf's Menu Cookbook

Active Time:  30 Minutes
Total Time:  1 Hour
Makes 12 servings

1 3/4 quarts chicken broth, or four 13 3/4-ounce cans
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled, shells reserved
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound andouille, Cajun, or other spicy sausage
1 cup chopped celery
2 cups chopped green bell peppers
2 cups chopped onions
1 serrano or 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup tomato juice
1/2 cup tomato paste
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon crushed red chili flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, or 1 teaspoon dried
Chopped scallions or onions for garnish

In a large stockpot, bring the chicken broth and reserved shrimp shells to a simmer. Let simmer for 10 minutes. Then strain and set the broth aside until ready to use in step three.

In a second large stockpot, heat the vegetable oil, then slice the sausage into 1/4-inch rounds, and cook it until lightly browned. Add the celery, bell peppers, and onions. Cook for about 10 minutes. Add the chilies and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes more. Stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato juice, tomato paste, and bay leaves.

Add the strained shellfish-flavored chicken broth and the crushed red chili flakes. Season the mixture with a little salt and pepper. Add the long-grain rice, cover the pot, and simmer for 15 to 18 minutes.

Finally, stir in the basil and add the shrimp. Cook for 5 minutes longer with the cover off. Be sure that the rice is almost cooked before you add the shrimp, so the shrimp won't overcook.

Serve in bowls and garnish with scallions or onions.

4. Johnny Cakes

Source: Saveur Magazine

Rhode Islanders believe it is stone ground johnnycake meal, whose grains are flat, not rounded like those of regular cornmeal, that sets these griddle cakes apart.

1 cup johnnycake meal
1 1/2 cups room temperature milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoon cooled melted butter

For thin, Newport style johnnycakes, combine johnnycake meal, milk, salt, and melted butter in a bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Heat griddle or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease with vegetable oil. Pour about 2 tablespoon batter onto griddle for each cake. (Batter should spread; if too thick, thin with up to 1/4 cup milk.) Cook until bubbles appear, about 2 minutes; flip and cook 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter, oiling griddle as needed. Serve with butter and/or maple syrup.
