Seafood Paella with Squid, Calamari Rings, Shrimp, Clam, and Salmon. 1 Serving = 1 Cup

Recipe Ingredients for Seafood Paella

1/10 cup olive oil
38 grams of Calamari (5 pieces)
1 1/2 large shrimps
1/10 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon saffron threads
1 cup long grain rice
1 cup water
0.33 large clams
1/2 ounce of squid
1/2 ounce of Salmon
0.33 ounce of Mussels
0.33 wedges lemon

Recipe Directions for Seafood Paella

  1. Heat olive oil in a very large skillet or paella pan over medium-high heat until it begins to smoke. Place chicken thighs skin-side down into oil and sear until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes; set aside.

  2. Stir in onion and garlic, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 1 minute. Add green and red bell peppers, calamari, and small shrimp; cook for 2 minutes more.

  3. Stir in salt, saffron, tomatoes, peas, rice, and water until well combined. Add chicken thighs, and simmer for 15 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring frequently to make sure rice does not stick.

  4. Decoratively nestle clams and jumbo shrimp into the rice. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Place the scallops into the paella, recover, and continue simmering until the rice is tender and the scallops firm and opaque, about 5 minutes. Garnish with lemon wedges to serve.
