Yield : 4 servings
Cooking Time : 30 minutes

Ingredients

Main Ingredients:

  • 10 ounces peeled and deveined medium shrimp
  • 10 ounces bay scallops
  • 1½ cups long grain white rice
  • 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup chopped fresh Parsley

Staples:

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    The carb amount here is not that rare. Rice is incredibly high in carbs. If one is like me, I can devour rice until the bowl is clean.

    I don't think I've ever seen a recipe with this high a carb count. Given what is in the recipe, it is nearly impossible to figure where all those carb come from in just one serving!
