Rock the Kabsa

Don’t skimp on the shrimp for your Iftar ideas. Shrimp kabsa is a delicious, comforting dish packed with warming spices and the tang of Omani limes.

In the second part of our Iftar recipe series from the UAE-based cookery writer Assia Othman, we explore the delicate Arabian flavours of the shrimp kabsa.

A one-pot wonder, shrimp kabsa is a healthy and nutritious alternative to fried foods – and a delicious dish to feature on your Iftar table with a host of side dishes, such as crunchy salads, vegetable dishes and Arabic bread.

From the cardamom pods to cinnamon sticks and whole cloves, this “comfort” recipe packs a flavour punch that is enhanced with the citrusy tang of fresh Omani limes.

Best of all, it is simple to prepare and can be cooked in a slow cooker and allowed to simmer while you get on with the important things in life, such as spending quality time with your family and friends before sitting down to Iftar.
