Paella is an open casserole dish that you read of when you read a romantic story set in the Mediterranean.

How to make Paella - Spanish Rice with Chicken and Prawns

  1. Place the bacon in a cold heavy bottom pan. Turn on the heat on low and allow the bacon to cook in its own fat. Add the chicken pieces or sausage and allow to brown. If you are not using bacon, fry chicken in some olive oil.
  2. Remove the chicken to a plate. Add the olive oil and add in onion, garlic and fry till translucent. Add the red bell pepper and the salt. Fry for a couple of minutes and then add the tomatoes. Add tomato puree and red paprika. Cook on high.
  3. Add the sugar to balance the tartness of the tomatoes.
  4. Add the chicken and a few prawns. Fry for a minute and add in the rice. Stir well to mix.
  5. Add in stock or add water and stock cubes. Stir and taste for salt.
  6. Add in saffron. Stir one last time. Turn gas to sim and do not cover. Cook open till the rice is almost done.
  7. Arrange prawns and parsley over the rice and press into the rice. Cover with the lid and cook on low heat for a further 8-10 minutes. Once the prawns turn pink turn the gas off.
  8. Let the paella sit about 10 -15 minutes and then bring out. You can sprinkle lemon juice over the rice just before serving.
My Tip: The saffron is the most essential addition to the dish. Totally masks any seafood smell.
