1/2 lb shrimp, peeled and chopped 1/2 lb squid, cut into pieces
1 medium yellow onion, chopped 1 medium ripe tomato, chopped
1 medium bell pepper, chopped 1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbs chopped fresh parsley 1 tsp salt
3 canned whole pimentos 1 cup canned green peas
1/2 cup olive oil 2 cups rice
1/4 tsp saffron 4 cups chicken broth
1 lemon cut into wedges Red pepper to taste
1 chicken, cut in pieces
If you don't have the traditional paella pan, a shallow, heavy, large
skillet can be used. Wash chicken and dry with paper towel. Saute in
hot olive oil for a few minutes and remove to a pot with 4 cups of
water. Boil chicken for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in the same skillet,
fry the onions and bell peppers. Add tomato. Meanwhile rinse the
seafood. Add the seafood to the skillet with onions, bell pepper and
tomato. Cut pimentos into strips and add half to skillet along with the
peas. Mash garlic, parsley and salt together with the back of a wooden
spoon and add to pan. Add the saffron, then the chicken, rice and
sausage. Cover with 4 cups boiling chicken broth. Stir gently to
distribute ingredients evenly. Bring to a boil for five minutes; then
reduce heat to medium and continue cooking until rice is tender and dry
and grains are separated, about 20 to 30 minutes. Do no stir during
cooking. When done adjust seasoning and add red pepper if you wish.
Garnish with remaining pimento strips and lemon wedges. Serve from pan.
Serves six.
