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.[1]


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


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]
