Rice with Spinach and Seafood

Rice with spinach and seafood

Two items that make this an easy meal are a large bag of frozen chopped spinach and frozen seafood pieces (paella mix) from the warehouse club.
Using plain white rice and boiling stock, this doesn’t take long to cook.

Chicken/vegetable stock
1/2 an onion
2 cloves garlic
1 cup rice , plain white rice
About a cup of frozen spinach
Frozen seafood pieces
Salt and pepper to taste
Grated hard cheese.

Put about 2 cups or so of the frozen seafood mix in a measuring cup and defrost in the microwave. Set aside.

Bring about 2-3 cups of stock to a boil then simmer.
In a large cast iron skillet sauté some onion and garlic, diced of course, salt and pepper to taste.
Add the rice and stir till rice is coated with oil for several minutes.
Add some butter also.
Add a good amount of the stock and boil the rice over medium high heat.
As the stock is absorbed, add more keeping the rice covered with liquid and stir often.
Add the frozen spinach, stir to break up the frozen spinach, again add more hot stock as necessary.
In another frypan, yes, this involves 3 pans, in a bit of oil and butter, cook the fish paella mix , I often call this deck sweepings as it’s a mix of squid, octopus ,scallops, tiny shrimp and the compressed fish that has the orange color, simulated crab meat or what ever you call it, delicious to me. Cook and stir over high heat till the water from the fish dissipates and pieces fry slightly. Be careful, the fish will get rubbery if it cooks too long.

Just when the rice is just short of desired doneness, add the fish pieces and stir a bit till most of the liquid I’d absorbed.
Turn off the heat and let stand several minutes.
Plate it up And grate cheese over the top. Crushed red pepper flakes also if desired.
This went together easy and only one photo.
