Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
Separate the lettuce leaves, discarding the root end; roughly tear any large outer leaves. Finely chop the cilantro leaves and stems. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise; thinly slice into half-moons on an angle.

Cook the shrimp
In the reserved pan, heat a small drizzle of oil and 3 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium. Pat the shrimp* dry with paper towel; toss with a drizzle of oil, the spices and S&P. Cook in a single layer, 1 to 2 min. per side, until opaque and cooked through.
