The other night I made a quick seafood paella for dinner. It was the first time I’ve attempted paella, and it turned out really well! I eat seafood, but not meat, so this recipe differs from traditional recipes in that it does not include chorizo. We live near a great fish market, so I’m looking forward to making the dish again soon!
- 1 pack of mixed seafood (shrimp, calamari etc), defrosted
- 1 cup rice
- 2 cups water
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 1 cup frozen peas, defrosted
- 1 diced onion
- dried ground coriander
- salt and other spices to taste.
- 2 limes.
Saute onion with tumeric, coriander, paprika, and other spices until onions are well-cooked. Add dried rice, and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden (approx 5 minutes). Add 2 cups of vegetable stock and cover until rice is cooked. When finished, add mixed seafood and peas, sprinkle with paprika, and add the juice of one lime. Serve with lime and other seasonings as desired.
