  • Summary

    In this recipe, the gentle taste of millet acquires the bolder flavors of lemon and saffron. We served this pilaf with grilled shrimp, but it would be just as good with any roasted or grilled fish.

    Ingredients

    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 2 shallots, peeled and finely diced
    • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
    • 3 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
    • 2 stalks celery, washed and finely chopped
    • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon saffron threads, crumbled
    • 1 1/2 cups millet
    • 3 cups water
    • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped lemon zest, plus more zest for garnish
    • 3/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
