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 🙂

Fruits are food of Gods! This salad is inspired from my trip to Sri Lanka. In a previous post i mentioned all the health benefits of the exotic fruits of Sinhala which really motivated me to create this tempting salad.
It has it all; wholesome, delish and beautifully presented. Imagine this mix of mango, pineapple, papaya, avocado and shrimps! When you smell its aroma as you take it to your mouth you wish to close your eyes to create a better mental image and involve all your senses.
So easy to do and doesn’t involve so much of preparation. To make this salad for two you need:
- one medium pineapple
- one medium mango
- two small avocado
- half of a papaya
- 300g shrimps cooked
Divide the pineapple in two halves and empty one of them to use it as a boat for the salad.
In a bowl, cut all the fruits in medium cubes then add the shrimps. Mix all with lemon mayo dressing and pour it in the pineapple shell. Eh voila ready to serve!
