  • 20 shrimp with the tail (medium), peeled and deveined

  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly oil a baking sheet pan and spread the rice in a single layer. Toast in the oven for 5 minutes.

  • Remove the baking sheet pan from oven and pour over the rice the hot broth, stiring well.
    Carefully reinsert the sheet pan into the oven, topped with an inverted sheet pan or cover (not too tightly) with aluminum foil and bake until the rice is cooked through and most of the liquid has been absorbed about 20-25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, pat well the defrosted seafood medley and shrimps. Add salt, pepper, a little bit of olive oil and toss together.

  • Remove the baking sheet pan from oven and stir in the tomatoes, peppers, green peas, prosciutto, and chorizo or smoked sausage (optional) into the rice. With a wooden spoon, spread the rice and vegetables in a single layer. Scatter all the seafood evenly by squeezing them lightly into the rice so they can soak the flavors of the dish. Bake uncovered for about 10-12 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Remove bay leaf. Garnish with lemon and parsley. Bring the whole sheet pan to the table for serving.
