Paella has been a tradition in Spanish homes for centuries, and it is a favorite festive meal for us as well. It’s always fun to experiment, and at our home it never turns out the same way twice. Traditionally, paella is seafood based, but in recent years many have enjoyed adding Spanish Chorizo, chicken and other proteins. Our kits includes the essentail seafood ingredients for at least six people.

One pound of Tiger Shrimp, Peeled and Deveined
Two pounds of Manila Clams

Seafood Paella

This recipe is intended for an 18” paella pan, which can be used both stove-top and in the oven. If you don’t have a paella pan, the stove-top cooking can be done in a large frying pan, with the food then transferred to a large casserole for baking.

Our Seafood-only kit provides:
1 lb Tiger Shrimp, Peeled and Deveined
2 lb Manila Clams
2 lb PEI Mussels
1 lb Dry Scallops
1 lb Bay Shrimp

Our PLUS kit also provides
2 TB Paella Seasoning Blend
3 Cans Fish Stock
3 cups Paella Rice

Directions

• In a mortar, mash the garlic, parsley, and ¼ teaspoon salt to a paste.
• Preheat oven to 400° F.
• Heat fish broth in a saucepan.
• Heat 6 TB olive oil in the paella pan over medium heat. Straddle over two burners if necessary. Add the scallops and bay shrimp, and chorizo if used. Cook for 2 minutes and remove to a warm platter.
