Curried Seafood Mix in Rice


Seven days before our 70s Disco Party and I am posting recipes???  I must be nuts!  Anyway, the cleaning continues and the next stop is my freezer.  I need at least two shelves (I hate the side by side refrigerator!!!) cleared. So I’ll start with  two packages of frozen seafood mix which I often use in sauteed vegetables.  Cooking it with garlic, onion and tomatoes, I mixed it with leftover cooked rice, added turmeric and curry powder (and a couple of okra from my garden) then baked it in the oven until all liquid has been absorbed.  Perfect for lunch on a busy weekend!


  • 2 packages seafood mix, defrosted
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 can chicken broth or water
  • 3 large tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tsp crushed chilli pepper
  • 1 tbs Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups cooked white rice


  1. In a large Dutch oven or oven-safe pan, saute garlic, onion, tomatoes  in oil. Add seafood mix, broth, seasonings and rice.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 30 minutes or until heated through, stirring after 20 minutes.

I’m not a huge fan of seafood… but this dish looks great!

My mother-in-law made a curried shrimp dish that my husband loves but this sounds like a great alternative! Maybe a little yogurt to give it the extra creaminess that he remembers (his mom used sour cream) – this looks delicious!
