At our house we all love seafood and this delicious Paella is much appreciated in our house. Paella is very popular among the Spanish sun and is really a summer dish. For an extra bite I added chicken thigh fillet to this Paella, if you’re not a fish lover then this recipe is also delicious with only chicken thigh fillet.
What do you need (4 to 6 people).
- 450g paella rice
- 1 onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 liter chicken stock
- bunch of tomatoes
- 200 grams peas
- 500 grams of shrimp cocktail
- 500 grams of seafood
- 4 to 5 chicken thigh fillet
- 1 tsp saffron
- 1 lemon
Cut the onion and chicken thighs into pieces, press the two cloves of garlic and fry together in a large pan with olive oil
Add the rice, seafood and cocktail shrimps and cook until rice is translucent.
Cut the tomatoes into pieces and fry briefly. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon saffron into the pan.
Add 1 liter chicken stock and let it cook for a while.
As a final step, add the peas. Boil everything for 20 minutes.
Garnish with parsley and lemon slices.
Enjoy your meal.
Healthy tip; use rice oil, it’s rich in vitamin E and antioxidants and much healthier than regular olive oil. For sale at the supermarket.1
