That moment that Raya and Sisu hop on the boat where Boun offers them shrimp congee. Oh how I really loved his charm. This recipe for Disney Raya Shrimp congee is inspired by the films scene where shrimp congee is served.
There is several scenes in the film by Disney Raya and The Last Dragon that feature food. From the kumandra soup to the jack fruit jerky to the shrimp congee. Boun offers it to Raya and Sisu and again to the Noi and the Ongis.
Congee is an easy rice based meal to make. I have added both chicken and shrimp when making congee. The dinner dish is a boiled white rice with water base.
Cooking the rice low and slow makes it become a smooth and light texture. I like to add chicken or shrimp near the end of the cooking process. Some add bouillon, ginger, and spring onions at the end.
What Is Congee
Congee or conjee is a type of rice porridge or gruel eaten in Asian countries. However, depending on what you add it can be a very nice meal.
At the end of the cooking process I like to add fresh ginger to the congee pot. After I am done and plating it I add spring onions. I also add the shrimp right at the end too as I use precooked salad shrimp.
I use precooked salad shrimp in this Disney Raya Shrimp Congee for the ease. Using regular small shrimp as well is possible. Just remember to remove the shells and the veins. Therefore it’s good to add the fresh shrimp in the last few minutes of cooking.
Make this meal for your family as a easy budget dinner. Great to serve up while watching the movie Raya and the Last Dragon. I like to serve up congee on a cool Autumn day outside.. Check out our list of other Disney foods.
