Red Sea Bass | Black Rice

The mood to experiment struck me when I saw this ad of Cendrillon’s Black Paella
(Cendrillon is located at 45 Mercer St. in the SoHo section of Manhattan,NY) I think the black rice looked nice and something new to try, especially for my husband. I have also been craving for seafoods lately and since I still have about a lb. of black rice (pirurutong) stashed amongst my ‘filipino ingredients collection’ (hard to find them here so I collect them, yes) I gave it a go last night, did not made a paella though. A lot of work since I’ve used 3 separate pans for this experiment but my critique loved it and have eaten 2 servings. Mr. dutch guy had never seen black rice before so he thought it was burned (!) when he came to the kitchen to investigate what was in the pan.
