Description

This rustic dish is a good option for cold weather comfort. The broth that's used to cook the rice is made by boiling the shrimp shells and heads with seasonings, then pureeing and straining. The monkfish is cooked first with the aromatics and vegetables, then removed and the rice is added to the same pan with that infused broth. The shrimp are simply sauteed with garlic, and this can be done while the rice is cooking so everything is ready at the same time.
