Remove from heat, and stir in salt and pepper. Spoon shrimp mixture over Spiced Rice, and sprinkle with cilantro. Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup rice, 3/4 cup shrimp mixture, and 1-1/2 teaspoons cilantro). INSTRUCTIONS FOR Spiced Rice: Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add rice and next 6 ingredients (rice through bay leaf). Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; discard cloves, cinnamon stick, and bay leaf.

As chef at New Yorks posh Lafayette restaurant, he pioneered a style of cooking that sparked a culinary revolution in this country: He replaced heavy sauces and stocks with vegetable juices, infused oils, and vinaigrettes. Under his command, the Lafayette received four stars from the New York Times. Today Vongerichten is chef and co-owner of three of New Yorks most sophisticated "in" restaurants. Known for his versatility and artistry, Vongerichten is a wizard at combining flavors from the East and West. He describes his cuisine as "essentially New York." Chefs note: "This is a wonderful dish for a summer party. Let the guests help themselves from large serving bowls of shrimp and spiced rice. Or or a fancier sit-down affair, serve individual timbales of rice surrounded by shrimp and broth in decorative flat soup plates."
