- chicken — 1 pc
- sweet pepper — 2 red
- 6 large tomatoes
- parsley (greens)
- 500 grams of rice
- 3 black peppercorns
- bay leaf
- a pinch of saffron
- garlic — 5 cloves
- 500 g peeled mussels
- 4.5 tbsp. l olive oil
- 500 g large shrimp
- 2 tbsp. l ground paprika
- lemon (zest, juice)
- carrots — 1 pc
Put the prepared tomatoes and saffron in the pan along with the water in which it is soaked.
Stir and simmer for 2 minutes.
Pour in 1 liter of chicken broth, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and cook without a lid, stirring for 12 minutes, until all the liquid is absorbed.
Check if rice is ready.
If necessary, add another 0.5 cups (not more!) Of chicken broth and keep on medium heat until rice reaches readiness.
Add chicken pieces.
Mussels put in a colander and rinse with warm water. Add them to the pan and cook another 3 minutes. For traditional Spanish paella, mussels are used in shells.
It is definitely beautiful, but not very comfortable.
In addition, our mussels in the shells are not so easy to find.
Therefore, you can buy fresh frozen prawns and mussels.
Parsley finely chopped.
Lemons cut into large slices.
Sprinkle with parsley.
Put lemon slices on top.
When culinary historians (including Pokhlebkin), finally, began to study the recipes of pilaf.
the best recipe for paella, except for the fact that less ingredients need to be taken: laid half a hen, 30 grams of mussels and the same amount of shrimp — and more than that. before that, they tried various recipes, I didn’t want to bother with the broth, I concluded: a little olive oil is not tasty, a lot of olive oil does not fundamentally change the taste, but the fat content is felt very much.
Only broth in combination with a small amount of olive oil and good tomatoes (she took canned Italian) gives a real Spanish taste!
Hello! I’m going to make this dish while buying food.
Please indicate the number of servings in the recipe layout of the products.
mmmm Yummy .. I really have not done this myself, I bought it.
It is necessary to cook.
But the taste is matchless.
Chicken put in paella before shrimp. Thanks for the comments, fixed
very tasty turned out!
but in paragraph 3 it is put aside again in the bowl, and when it returns to the dish — it is not clear
paragraph 3 mentions a deferred chicken.
as always, be sure to forget anything.
That extra ingredient appears during the description of the preparation, on the contrary, everything specified on the list, etc., is not used.
I also did not quite understand at what point the chicken should be returned to its place :))
I didn’t understand something, a chicken that you put in a bowl, then you shouldn’t use it anywhere?
In Spain, oddly enough, I also don’t really like it — it’s really fatty.
And what rice was taken?
It turned out very tasty! Almost like in Spain, only less bold, which is even better for me. Unified "but"that took me and chicken meat and seafood.
And the rest is brilliant!
Pets were delighted.
