Paella for 8 and a great recipe

in #food7 years ago (edited)

Last night I was invited to a friends house for dinner and they prepared this amazing Seafood Paella. This is our national dish here in Spain and is normally eaten once a week most often on a sunday.

This Paella was made for 8 of us and I can tell you there was nothing left in a matter of very little time.

Here is a recipe for Seafood Paella in case you want to try this at home, this 

 Ingredients for 4 portions

  • 4 cups fish stock
  • 1 teaspoon saffron threads
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 250g firm fish fillets (such as blue eye), cut into 2cm pieces
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 cups arborio rice
  • 2 tomatoes, peeled, deseeded, diced
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 500g medium green king prawns, peeled, deveined
  • 150g baby squid, cleaned, cut into 1cm-thick rings
  • 12 mussels, scrubbed, debearded
  • 2/3 cup frozen peas

Cooking method instructions

  • Step 1 Combine stock, 1 cup cold water and saffron in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Keep at a simmer.
  • Step 2 Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 24cm (base) non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add fish and cook for 1 minute each side or until light golden. Transfer to a plate. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add onion and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes or until soft. Add rice, tomatoes and paprika. Stir to combine. Using a spoon, spread mixture evenly over base of pan.
  • Step 3 Add half the stock mixture to frying pan and bring to the boil over high heat. Shake pan to spread mixture across pan (do not stir). Reduce heat to medium. Cook, uncovered, without stirring, for 10 minutes or until stock is absorbed.
  • Step 4 Add prawns, squid and mussels, pressing into rice mixture. Add 1/2 cup stock mixture and cook until all liquid is absorbed. Repeat with remaining stock mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, adding fish and peas with the last 1/2 cup stock (this will take 15 to 20 minutes). Remove from heat. Stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Season with pepper. Serve.


There are a hundred ways to cook a Paella, important is the quality and freshness of the ingredients and especially the cooking time towards the end.

Where are you from? You can substitute some of the ingredients for others and still make an amazing paella

I come from Indonesia.
What ingredients should I change to make paella@mallorcaman

Whatever ones you dont think you can find. From the list which are the products that are not available in your country?
