How To Make seafood fried rice

  • 1
    Prepare rice:1 cup uncooked rice 1 ¾ cups water, 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon butter Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; stir once. Cover with tight fitting lid or foil; reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand (covered) for 10 minutes longer. Set aside. This is for approximately 3 cups of cooked rice.

    Scallops: Rinse with cold water and thoroughly pat dry scallops. Salt and pepper the scallops.

    Once the fat begins to smoke, gently add the scallops, making sure they are not touching each other. Sear the scallops for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. The scallops should have a 1/4-inch golden crust on each side while still being translucent in the center. Set aside.

    Shrimp: Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil and 1 tsp. butter to the hot skillet and sear the shrimps 3 minutes on each side or until curled and pink. Note: The tail can often be left on for cooking, but if you'd like to take it off now, pinch the tail where it meets the body of the shrimp and gently pull.
