Ingredients

  • 1 large white onion
  • olive oil
  • 350g paella rice
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 2 large pinches saffron
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 125ml white wine
  • 1 – 1.2 litres vegetable stock
  • 100g chorizo, sliced finely
  • 100g peas
  • 100g squid, sliced finely
  • 100g prawns
  • 150g mussels
  • small bunch of parsley
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 lime

Method

The wine in this recipe is optional.

1 Finely chop the onion. In a large pan, preferably a paella one, heat the olive oil. Fry off the onions then add the rice and cook for a minute or two.

2 Mince the garlic and add to the pan alongside the saffron, paprika and white wine. Cook until the wine is fully absorbed. Begin adding the stock ladleful at a time, stirring in between.

3 Only add more stock once the last batch has been fully absorbed. A few minutes before the rice is cooked (you want it al dente) stir in the chorizo, peas, and all the fish. Cook for a few minutes then stir in the parsley.

5 Season to taste then serve immediately with lemon and lime wedges.
