"Seafood Blend Rice Pilaf"

Seafood rice is an easy and  impressive dish. This 1-dish meal did a great job of uniting the savory flavors of the various seafood ingredients. The rice and carrots are full of flavor. Best seafood with rice dish I've ever had! Also I have a Chicken Rice Plaf posted too.


1 lbs seafood blend (Shrimps, Calamari and Bay Scallops) from Trader Joe's
2-3 large carrots
1 onion
Oil or butter
1 tbsp fresh or frosen dill
Salt, cumin seeds, pepper, coriander, bay leaf.
1.5 cups jasmine rice 
3 cups water
Dill, parsley flakes

Boil the rice until almost ready, set it aside.

Peel onion and carrots.  
Julienne carrots and cut onion into small cubes.
In the heavy sauce pot cook carrots and onion in oil. 
Rinse seafood  thoroughly under running hot water. Precook with butter and spices for a few min.  
Add seafood to the pot and stir well for a few min. 
Add cooked rice and spices, mix well. Make sure it has some oil or butter in it. Cook for 5 min stir a few times. 
Add some butter pieces. 
 Top it with fresh dill.
