Preparation

1
VEGGIES
2
Simply julienne swiss chard, carrots, asparagus, and broccolini florets. Blanche and set aside. Add salt and pepper to taste. The blanching process will maintain the vegetables’ color and crisp texture for the best look and effect.
3
FISH
4
Add salt and pepper to fish fillets. Cut into mini steaks then grill in pan.
5
Cut fish fillets into mini rectangular shaped steaks. Add salt and pepper to both sides.
6
Pan fry fish in oiled pan until it begins to flake when tested with a fork (indicating that it’s done).
7
RICE
8
This rice is best made in a flat, wide frying pan and spatula.
9
Add achiote seeds and oil to frying pan. Heat pan and coat seeds thoroughly until the oil turns a deep, burnt red color and seeds are blackened. Reduce flame and remove seeds from oil.
10
Immediately add rice to oil in pan. Coat rice thoroughly until it achieves a translucent reddish color (in about 2 mins).
11
Add 1 packet of Sazon to rice and mix thoroughly again until an even deeper red-yellow-orange color is achieved.
12
Immediately add sofrito, onions, tomatoes and peppers, mix thoroughly then add 2 cups of water.
13
Bring rice mixture to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until rice is tender and water is absorbed completely, about 25 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and let it sit, covered, for 5 minutes before serving.
14
PLATE LIKE DWEH
15
You really want to play up the colors of this dish. On a superbly colored plate (I chose aquamarine), place a portion of rice, then an assortment of veggies on top. Above it all, place your rectangular red snapper fillets. Sprinkle your red pepper flakes like voila!
