“Es Barcarés” Rice

“Es Barcarés” Rice

Nailing that traditional recipe is harder than you’d think. Everyone has a twist on the ingredients and ultimately it can be whatever you want it to be but if you entered a competition never add chorizo 😂

Anyway in a search for the authenticity we stumbled across a blog ‘Amarillo Azafran’ which featured a rice recipe cooked up on the shores of Bacares on the far side of Pollenca Bay. What caught my eye was that no other than Santi Taura was a guest at this feast and lending a hand. That was over 10 years ago and since then Santi has gone on to become a phenomenal Michelin Star chef here in Mallorca,

We have added a link to the blog post but here’s their way of cooking ‘Arroz Es Bacares’

• Arroz Bomba rice (put a ladle of serving for each diner)
• 1½ litres of fish broth
• 1 kilo of shrimp cleaned
• 4 Sepias (weighed 2 kilos) cleaned and ink bags separated
• 3 onions chopped into small squares
• 4 large ripe tomatoes peeled and crushed
• 3 cloves of garlic (chopped)

• 6-7 Mallorcan green peppers (chopped)
• A handful of green beans (chopped)
• A little chopped parsley
• A piece of sobrasada
• Salt, sweet paprika
• Olive oil
