Some smoked paprika
1 large red pepper
1 large onion
3 to 4 garlic cloves3 to 4 cups of chicken stock
5 to 6 shrimps
100 grams of peas
1 or 2 large tomatoesSalt and pepper as needed
A little bit of saffron
cup of olive oil
Heat up your pan and add your olive oil in it. It is ideal to have a paella pan, but if you dont have this, any available pan can be used with flat bottom. Add chicken and fry it on high or medium heat for just 1 or 2 minutes. When chicken becomes slightly brown, remove it from pan.
In the same pan, add a little bit of olive oil and add your onion, red pepper and the garlic in it. Stir fry it until the fragrance comes. Now add salt and black pepper and keep frying it until onion loses its water.
Now place your chicken back in the pan.
Add diced tomatoes.
After frying it for 1 to 2 minutes, add rice followed by smoke paprika. Stir fry this mixture for 2 minutes more and mix it continuously.
Now pour chicken stock and mix.
Add saffron and boil it for 20 minutes more. At this point, dont cover your pan and cook rice uncovered. Depending on the kind of rice you are cooking, it might be possible that you need some extra stock to cook your rice.
After 20 minutes, place shrimps in your pan. You can use prawns, mussels, squids whatever you like. Sprinkle your peas at this point.
Now cover the pan and let it cook for 10 minutes on low heat.
After 10 minutes, open the cover and check if your shrimps become pink. If yes, then Paella is ready to be enjoyed. Garnish your Paella with lemon pieces and enjoy.
