  • Place garlic, peppers and tomato cubes into the skillet that the chicken was just removed from. Fry the vegetables until they soften.

  • Bring the fish stock and 3 cups salted water to a boil and mix in 3 cups rice, saffron and paprika. Bring to a boil again. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 50 minutes or until rice is tender.

  • Stir the peas into the rice. Pour the rice mixture into a large serving dish. Arrange the fried vegetables, chicken, shellfish and prawns around the rice. Serve hot.

I've made this a few times now and learned one important lesson. Don't make this if you don't have the fresh tomatoes. The flavors did not come together without them. I recently made this with chicken and no seafood and liked it just as much. This dish is a favorite of my whole family even my son who doesn't like rice - he once tried to order paella without the rice in a restaurant! Read More
