"Seafood Blend Rice Pilaf"


Seafood rice is an easy and  impressive dish. This 1-dish meal did a great job of uniting the savory flavors of the various seafood ingredients. The rice and carrots are full of flavor. Best seafood with rice dish I've ever had! Also I have a Chicken Rice Plaf posted too.


       Ingredients:



  1. 1.5 cups jasmine rice 
  2. 3 cups water
  3. 1 lbs seafood blend (Shrimps, Calamari and Bay Scallops) from Trader Joe's

  6. 1 med onion
