Today I bring you the most delicious and exquisite shrimp rice there is, and there is a history behind it.

My sister was visiting her best friend in Barranquilla, Colombia; she has known this friend since elementary school and let’s just says that now they are both in their late 50’s!

She treated my sister like royalty and the meals she prepared every day were better than the previous one! Starting in the morning, she offered her a tray with chopped tropical fruits that are very typical of our region. Lunchtime was another feast!

We love rice, which in Colombia we prepared almost every day, but this particular day, my friend prepared a shrimp rice with avocado salad.

My sister did not hesitate one instant to ask her for the recipe, which she graciously agreed to give to her, and today here it is for all of you to enjoy!

Let’s start!
