I created this recipe to replicate paella for a crowd. I love paella, but it's expensive and not everyone likes the mussels and sausage in it. Serve this dish with a good Spanish wine and some bread and oil and it will be a sure crowd-pleaser!

  • Heat remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until just soft, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and seafood seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are bright pink, about 5 minutes.

  • Mound rice on each plate; top with a portion of the pepper-shrimp mixture and a generous sprinkling of parsley.
