Spice It Up!
This is a very traditional style Puerto Rican dish, an asopao. I thought we were due for some seafood, so I'm bringing back this recipe by HK friend Puerto Rican TV chef Cielito Rosado. Enjoy!
Prep. 10 minutes; cooking 30-35 minutes.
1 lb. peeled shrimp (shrimp will need to be seasoned prior to cooking)
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup sofrito
½ cup tomato sauce
¾ cup long-grain or medium-grain rice (you might wish to rinse it first)
4 to 5 cups fish stock
½ cup chopped sweet red pepper (pimiento morrón)
¼ cup fresh cilantro
salt to taste
1. Season the shrimp beforehand and let sit in the refrigerator until you are ready to start the recipe.
2. In a medium-size pot heat olive oil to medium temperature, and add the sofrito and tomato sauce. Cook 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Add the fish stock, rice, pimientos and cilantro, and cook at medium heat for 20 minutes.
4. Add the shrimp and cook for 15 minutes.
