Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the Spanish rice

  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into 1-inch pieces.
  • Rinse the rice.
In a medium frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion, bell pepper, and rice, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the vegetables start to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the tomato paste and stir until evenly incorporated and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add ¾ cup [1½ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Make the garlic–sherry vinegar mixture

  • Finely chop, press, or grate the garlic.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a small bowl, stir together the garlic, parsley, sherry vinegar, 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil, and as many chile flakes as you like.

3

Prep and cook the shellfish

For the shrimp or jumbo shrimp:
  • Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until barely pink and almost cooked through, about 1 minute per side for regular shrimp, 1 to 2 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. Stir in the garlic–sherry vinegar mixture and cook until fragrant and the shrimp are cooked through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

For the scallops:
  • Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Stir in the garlic–sherry vinegar mixture and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the rice to individual bowls and top with the shellfish. Spoon over as much sauce as you like and serve.
