The seafood festival was the concept that I brought here to the Maldives for the festive season just passed.
So I thought I’d give you a delicious recipe for baked seafood rice.
Baked rice with seafood
The seafood rice is prepared by separately cooking clams and mussels and peeled shrimps while the rice is cooked in the oven, adding the molluscs only at the end. Here are the steps for the baked seafood rice.
Baked seafood rice
Wash the mussels well and remove the fine linen for each of them by simply pulling it with your hands. Then put the clams in salt water so that they can lose the sand.
