Bold, zesty flavors abound in this comforting dish thanks to spices like smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, and more that coat the shrimp, and the herbaceous cilantro sauce that we're cooking the tomatoes and rice in.

    1 Prepare the ingredients & start the trays

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the tomatoes. Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. Between the two trays, evenly divide the rice, tomatoes, cilantro sauce, and as much of the pepper as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Add 1 cup of water to each tray. Season with salt and pepper; stir to thoroughly combine. Tightly cover the trays with foil and bake 30 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully remove the foil.

    Meanwhile, pat the shrimp dry with paper towels (remove the tails if desired); season with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. Add the seasoned shrimp and pepitas in an even layer on top of the partially cooked base. Bake, uncovered, 10 to 12 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through. Remove from the oven. Serve the finished trays topped with the sour cream. Enjoy!
