Arroz de Peixe - Fish Rice

I'm pretty lucky that my kids love fish, we don't eat it as often as I would like because I really don't like the frozen kind and being here in Arizona, it's not like we have readily available fresh fish.

For this meal though, frozen flounder or any other kind of fish works just fine.


1 lb. frozen flounder, thawed and cut into bite size chunks
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped
salt and pepper
1 bay leaf
1 can of corn
3 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of uncooked rice

In a large skillet, add a little bit of olive oil, onions and tomatoes, garlic and seasonings....cook for a minute or two until the onions are tender.


Add the fish and mix well. Add the can of corn and stir.


Cook for about 2 minutes, then add 3 cups of water and the rice.


Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is cooked through. You may need to add a little more water so it doesn't stick, just keep an eye on it.

Remove the bay leaf and serve.
