Maria’s Paella



Ingredients :

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 ¼ pounds chicken thighs
  • ½ cup onion
  • diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • chopped
  • ½ green bell pepper
  • diced
  • ½ red bell pepper
  • diced
  • ¼ pound calamari rings
  • ¼ pound small shrimp – peeled and deveined
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons saffron threads
  • 1 (14 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • ½ cup peas
  • 3 cups long grain rice
  • 6 cups water
  • 6 large clams in shell
  • scrubbed
  • 6 jumbo shrimp in shells (21-25 per lb.)
  • 6 large sea scallops
  • 6 wedges lemon
  • Methods :

  • Heat olive oil in a very large skillet or paella pan over medium-high heat until it begins to smoke. Place chicken thighs skin-side down into oil and sear until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes; set aside.
  • Stir in onion and garlic, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 1 minute. Add green and red bell peppers, calamari, and small shrimp; cook for 2 minutes more.
  • Stir in salt, saffron, tomatoes, peas, rice, and water until well combined. Add chicken thighs, and simmer for 15 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring frequently to make sure rice does not stick.
  • Decoratively nestle clams and jumbo shrimp into the rice. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Place the scallops into the paella, recover, and continue simmering until the rice is tender and the scallops firm and opaque, about 5 minutes. Garnish with lemon wedges to serve.
