By Kris

This is a simple, fresh one dish meal.

1 1/2 lbs shrimp
3 1/2 cups chicken stock
2 cups white rice
1 small minced onion
1 tbl tomato paste
1 tbl chopped garlic
2 teas paprika
1/2 teas salt
1/4 teas pepper
1/4 teas crushed red pepper flakes
scallions or chives to garnish

Saute onion and garlic in oil in large oven safe skillet until soft. Add salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Add tomato paste and paprika and cook and stir for one minute. Add rice, cook for two minutes, then add chicken stock. Simmer for one minute then place shrimp on top. Transfer skillet to 450 degree oven. Roast for about 15 minutes or until rice is tender. Turn off oven and let skillet sit for about 15 minutes. The rice will turn brown and crispy around the edges. Garnish with fresh scallions or chives and enjoy.
