Dangerously organic!

From our friends at Rattos... This looks absolutely delicious! Ratto's has been around for over 100 years. Zoobird member Michael Hauser is the webmaster. Today Ratto's kindly posted this recipe. The fennel and smoked paprika make it look especially unique. Of course, you can substitute anything you like for the seafood if you're vegetarian. Thanks, Rattos!
