    RSHDiva's Note:

    This is a spectacular main dish for a very special occasion. The ingredients are pricey, but for a celebration, or sure-fire impressive entrée, this is the ticket. Just make sure not to over-cook it.

      Cut the roasted and peeled peppers into 1/2 inch dice and set aside.

      In an ovenproof frying pan or a paella pan about 12 inches in diameter, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute, stirring, until soft, about 10 minutes.

      Fabulous. The seafood was perfectly cooked and everyone loved it. They don't tell you how much seafood to use. We used a pound of each to serve 6.
