Rice dishes such as this one, similar to ‘Paella’, are easy to cook in the oven because you can forget about it. For this ‘Seafood Baked Rice’, I always use Marinara (Seafood) Mix. I could have arranged the seafood pieces more artistic way. You can use better quality seafood and make it look beautiful!
