DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan, heat annatto oil, butter and salt to taste, add rice and onions and cook briefly until onion is tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes and tomato paste and 4 1/2 cups water and simmer, covered, until rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile steam lobster in 1/2 cup water seasoned with curry powder and salt to taste.
  • Once done (meat will turn opaque), place on serving platter.
  • Add grated parmesan to rice once done and arrange around lobster on platter, and serve.
  • Note: Annatto oil is an orange colored oil that is made by heating 1/4 cup of oil with annatto seeds for a few minutes until oil turns orange. It is what makes yellow rice yellow. If you don't have this just add 1/2 teaspoon turmeric to rice to achieve a nice yellow color without altering the flavor of the rice too much, or just omit and add cooking oil.
