This dish has great flexibility. It can be prepared with any shellfish (mussels, clams, cockels…), seafood, and squid, cattlefish… depending on one’s budget.

Have you ever tried black rice? I simply love it. It’s one of my favourite rice dishes, it’s so versatile!
I fell in love with it the first time I tried it, many years ago in a tiny Mediterranean village. Not only does it look incredible but it combines two of my favourite elements: vegetables and sea fruits. Isn’t it perfect?
Besides, it has a great advantage: flexibility. It can be prepared with any shellfish (mussels, clams, cockels…), seafood, and squid, cattlefish… depending on one’s budget.
It’s usually served with aïoli (garlic mayonnaise) on the side. Unless you’re a vampire you should try it, the flavour is astonishing!
Today I’ve chosen some baby squid and a few beautiful king prawns.
