Seafood Cook Up
Who doesn’t love a good one-pot? It’s quick, convenient and shares well for large groups. Though our most famous one-pot (Pelau in case you weren’t sure) usually features meat, there are other ways to get that one-pot goodness in a lent-friendly manner. Take this CUISINE Seafood Cook Up for example.
To a hot pot on medium heat, add some Olive Oil.
Add Onions and Garlic and sauté until they become slightly translucent. About two minutes.
Next, add some fresh, diced tomato.
Season with a little Salt and Black Pepper
And let it all reduce into a paste that will be the base of the dish. About 15 minutes will do.
Here’s where you can start adding more flavor. Try some Paprika, but don’t be afraid to put your own twist on it.
You can add some Saffron for flavor and color too.
Time to get the CUISINE Rice in.
Followed by some Green Peas.
And some Chadon Beni for another layer of seasoning.
Then distribute this batch of ingredients evenly to make room for the others.
Bell Peppers. Try both red and green varieties for more color in the final presentation.
And round it off with some CUISINE Corn.
Add enough hot water to cover the ingredients. Make sure it’s hot water so you don’t slow down the cooking process. At this stage, you want to cook the Rice until it is al dente, so it doesn’t overcook when you add the seafood.
Now is the time to add your Fish. Any meaty, boneless pieces will do.
Check your seasoning and add more Salt and Black Pepper to taste.
Top up with hot water if needed as well. And put in a hot pepper for a little kick.
Put a layer of CUISINE Shrimp and some fresh Chive for a final layer of seasoning. Then cover and simmer until the liquid reduces.
And that’s it. A lent approved one-pot that can supply miles of smiles for lent and beyond.
Lent doesn’t mean you can’t get in on some serious one-pot action in your next lime or home cooked meal. Here’s a simple Seafood Cook Up using CUISINE ingredients that is sure to be a hit inside or outside of Lent.
