Free and Friendly Foods Seafood Fried Rice

Seafood Stir Fry

I think this is the last of my Foodie Dream Posts for a while. Did you know I’ve always wanted to go to a place like French Laundry or Chez Panisse (started by Alice Waters)? Welp, I do, annnnd I can’t. So to make up for it, I like to dream up long fancy titles of meals. Officially, this one is described as (make sure you read it in your best voice): A seafood medley composed of a delightful blend of sea scallops, shrimp and calamari. To dazzle your taste buds we also added seasonal ramps, and crunch organic snap peas.
Or for short, you can call it Seafood Stir Fry.

Since this recipe involves a lot of moving parts, it’s broken down a bit more than usual.

First, make sure you have a large pot handy. You’ll be cooking each section of the recipe, then adding it to the big pot. In the end, you’ll mix everything together. You can opt to not season the rice and throw it in the pot too, or season it as well, which we did. However, don’t over season since you don’t want it to overpower the other flavors. Also, if you are using cauliflower rice, DO NOT mix it in the other ingredients. Serve the mixture over the rice. You don’t want it to get lost among everything else.

Also, I continued to reuse the same large non-stick through the entire process. On to the instructions! (each time you see done, that means add it to your collection pot and move on to the next step 🙂

Baby Broccoli Tops
5 ounces Organic Baby Broccoli Tops (2 bunches)
2 TBSP Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Heat your non-stick on medium heat (350) and cook the baby broccoli tops in the olive oil for 10 minutes. Done.

Diced White Onion
8 ounces Organic White Onion, diced
3 TBSP Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Heat your pan on medium-high heat (400) and cook the diced onions in the olive oil for 8 minutes. Done.

Ramps & Green Onions
15 Ramp Bulbs, chopped
1 bunch Organic Green Onions, chopped
2 TBSP Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Heat your pan on high heat (425) and cook the ramps, green onions, and olive oil for 5 minutes. Done.

Snap Peas
7 ounces Organic Snap Peas (see picture for cutting guide)
2 tsp Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Sea Salt

Heat your pan on high heat (425) and cook the olive oil and snap peas for 4 minutes. Add your salt towards the end, and mix well. Scroll through the pictures for the cutting guide. I opted to use snap peas, the pea and the pod, for extra crunch. The short cook time also keeps the crunch in tact. You’re done now. Please add the peas to the pot.

Wild Shrimp
1 pound Wild Shrimp, cur into thirds
3 TBSP Dairy Free Butter (or fat/oil of choice)
1/2 Organic Lemon
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Braggs Organic Sea Kelp Sprinkle

Heat your pan on medium-high heat (400) and add the shrimp. Allow it to cook a bit before adding the butter, as you don’t want it to burn. When the shrimp appears to be half-cooked (it will no longer be white/gray but turning pink), add the lemon, salt, and Braggs. The whole process took me 8 minutes. Make sure your shrimp are fully cooked before moving on. Done.

Sea Scallops
10 large Sea Scallops, quartered
5 TBSP Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
2 tsp Organic Dried Chives

Heat your pan on medium heat (350), and add your olive oil. Once heated, add your scallops. Make sure they aren’t stuck together, but allow them to sit and cook before turning them over. This will allow them to brown nicely. After 5 to 7 minutes, increase the temperature to high heat (425). Add your seasonings, and turn the scallops over if you haven’t already. Cook for another 4 minutes. Remove from heat, and add your chives. Done.

Calamari
1 Calamari Steak, cut into small pieces
1/4 tsp Organic Smoked Paprika (omit for AIP)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Organic Dried Parsley

I started with a knife when cutting the calamari, but resorted to scissors. It was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. Heat your pan on medium-high heat (375) and add the calamari. Add the seasonings and mix things well. Allow the calamari to cook for 3 – 4 minutes.

Rice
To season your rice, or cauliflower rice, add lemon, butter/fat/oil, salt, parsley, and chives to taste.
