  2. Add kielbasa and cook, stirring, until kielbasa is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add rice, wine, broth, saffron, and shrimp and cook, covered and undisturbed, over high heat until most of liquid is absorbed and shrimp are cooked through, about 6 minutes.

  5. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, until all liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
