This is my new lunchtime invention! I heart cooking with shrimps and pairing it with a side filling dish. Today the Spanish rice is the awesome amigo.
If you are fan of the Spanish flavors, i encourage you to give it a try. Vamos to this flavorful quick, easy and foolproof recipe. I am sure you will end up with a staple recipe in your cooking book. I got lots of compliments 🙂
To serve two big portions you will need:
- 400g cooked shrimps (oven baked or boiled) and deveined. Divided in 2x200g portions
- 1 cup rice
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 tbsp sweet paprika
- 1/2 tsp garlic salt
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium onion finely diced
How to prepare the rice?
Heat the olive oil and cook the onion until fragrant and translucent. Add the rice and pour the chicken broth. If you prefer vegetable broth go ahead, it will still be as delicious. Mix all and add the remaining ingredients, tomato paste, paprika and garlic salt. Put 200g of the shrimps and keep the other 200g to serve it along with the rice for a nice presentation. When it starts boiling, cover your pot with the lid and let it cook on a very slow flame about 20-25 minutes or until all the liquid is gone.
This rice is a basic one for more other inventions, next time i will try it with beans or chicken. I will keep you posted. Happy cooking 🙂

Smell does to discover and enjoy this dish as much as taste. The fragrance reaches the nose before the food reaches the mouth. An Asian inspired dish, rich with the ambrosial ginger, garlic, soy, wasabi, sesame seeds and scallions.
Get ready for a taste of heaven! you will need
- 1 kg whole fish (800g fish fillet)
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp wasabi
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 grated garlic cloves
- 1 1/2 tbsp freshly grated ginger
- 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- 3 sliced scallions
Whisk together soy, vinegar, brown sugar, wasabi, garlic, ginger and oil.
Make diagonal cuts on both sides of the fish to allow more moisture to be absorbed. When roasting a whole fish always ensure the skin is on.
Line your pan with aluminum foil and greaseproof sheet. Place the fish on the baking sheet and coat it with the marinade then close the edges of the sheet.
Having the baking sheet on aluminum foil will preserve the marination and the fish will stay moist.
Preheat your oven (220°C). Bake for 20 mns. Transfer to a serving plate. Don’t get rid of the juice, drizzle it on the fish and garnish with the sesame seeds and scallions. Serve it alone or with some rice.
Ginger sesame rice to go with this dish.
- 1 1/4 cup rice
- 1 tbsp minced ginger
- 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
- 2 1/2 cup water
Heat olive oil in sauce pan. Add ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant for 3-4 minutes.
Add rice and water and bring to boil. Cover with a lid, reduce heat to low and let it simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove from heat, cover the pan with a towel and let it sit for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and fluff the rice with a fork. Toss in the sesame seeds and taste to check if it needs salt.
Dishes with diversified colors and aromatic flavors can usually greatly arouse people’s appetite. It’s hard to describe the amazing taste, you need to try it!
