Perfect Seafood Paella

Paella is a traditional Spanish rice dish topped with a variety of meat and vegetables. The dish isn’t named after the blend of ingredients, but it’s named after the ‘paellera’ pan it was cooked in — a pan with two handles on each side, made to withstand the intense heat of an open flame that could cook the dish more evenly. During the mid-19th century in Valencia, farmers and laborers would break for lunch and prepare a meal with leftover food from Moorish feasts on a fire — rice, seafood, seasonal vegetables, meat and saffron — all the main ingredients that make up an authentic, hearty paella dish.

This paella dish is also a convenient one-pot recipe that could feed your family or guests, here’s a simple paella recipe for you! Firstly, fry some prawns in olive oil to infuse it, then set it aside. Next, fry ingredients like garlic, onion and red peppers until fragrant in the prawn infused oil. Elevate the flavours of the dish by adding some paprika, oregano and tomato sauce. Now, it’s time to add in the rice! Stir through the tomato sauce, then add the rice and mix it thoroughly with other ingredients. Cook for a couple of minutes to let the rice absorb all the lovely flavours thoroughly. After that, dilute some chicken stock with water, pour into the pan and let the rice cook for 25 minutes. Lastly, stir in the cooked prawns and green peas and let it cook until the rice is fluffy. Garnish it with some parsley leaves and lemon slices and enjoy while it’s hot!
