  3. Add the salt and the black pepper, along with the white wine. Cook, stirring frequently, for the next 3 to 5 minutes, to allow the liquid to reduce.
  4. Stir in the seafood stock, the tomatoes, and the rice.
  5. Cover the Dutch oven and cook for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove the cover and stir in the shrimp. Re-cover the Dutch oven and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes until the shrimp are done.
