Seafood Pilau

4 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
4 tablespoons demerara sugar
2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
1 cup water
2 teaspoons Scotch bonnet hot sauce
1/2 cup olive oil -- more if necessary
1 cup diced carrots
1 large onion -- diced
1 red pepper -- diced
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
1 pound fresh codfish -- cut 1 1/2" chunks
8 cups rice -- cooked
1 pound crawfish -- cooked, cleaned
2 cans pigeon peas - (12 1/2 oz ea) -- drained, rinsed
1 cup chopped scallions
Kosher salt -- to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste
1 pound jumbo shrimp - (U-15) -- cleaned, deveined


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.


In a bowl, mix ketchup, Worcestershire, sugar, coconut milk, water, and hot sauce. Set aside.


Heat a large skillet over high heat. Saute vegetables in the olive oil; first the carrots, then onions, red peppers, garlic, and last, the thyme. Saute until fragrant. Turn the cooked vegetables out onto a dish.


Reheat skillet, adding more oil if necessary. Saute cod until almost done, add to vegetables.


Reheat the skillet. Add the ketchup mixture, and bring to a boil. Add back the vegetables and cod. Stir in the rice, mixing well. Keep moving the rice, like a stir-fry.


After a few minutes, add the crawfish, pigeon peas, and the scallions. Season, to taste. Scatter the shrimp on the top of the rice. Cover the skillet and put it into the oven for about 15 minutes. Cook until shrimp are opaque, and slightly curled.


This recipe yields 8 to 10 servings.
