Paella (Rice Dish)Spanish Rice Stew with Clams, Mussels & Shrimp

If using seafood, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add clams or mussels; boil gently until fully cooked or shells open. Add shrimp the last five or ten minutes of cooking time; shrimp will turn pink when fully cooked. Drain seafood and set aside.


Paella Pan


Add olive oil to a large skillet or Paella pan (see photo above); heat until olive oil smokes. Season the chicken with Paellero Blend Seasoning; add the chicken pieces to hot olive oil and fry on all sides. Add the minced garlic and chopped bell peppers; fry until soft. Add the rice; mix well and then add the tomatoes. Pour in enough water or chicken stock to cover the rice; cover and cook on low heat for about twenty minutes. Five minutes before the end of cooking time, arrange the shrimp on top of the mixture, along with the clams, mussels and peas. Serve.
