A locrio is a rice dish from the Dominican Republic. Similar to pilaf and paella, it consists of seasoned rice with some kind of meat, such as chicken, Dominican salami or pork, but no beef.[1]

Origin[edit]

The locrio is possibly a Dominican adaptation of paella.[2]

Types[edit]

Besides chicken, locrio is also commonly made of Dominican salami, guineafowl, rabbit, pork chops, arenque (dried herring),[3] shellfish, or sardines (often called pica-pica).[4]
