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
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 3½ cups reduced-sodium, fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 medium onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Place the shrimp and scallops in a bowl. Sprinkle with the paprika, turmeric, black pepper, and salt, if desired, and stir to coat.

Place the broth in a 4-quart pot, and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the shrimp, scallops, onion, garlic, and rice, and stir to mix. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add the bell pepper and parsley to the rice mixture, stir once, and continue to simmer covered for 5 to 7 additional minutes, or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Serve immediately.

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!
