Fry chopped onion and root vegetables – carrots, parsley and celery in any proportion in oil. Add seafood – this recipe uses 2 bags of “sea cocktail” which includes octopus, small clams, cuttlefish rings, prawns and other animals. Stir-fry briefly and add the round grain rice.
Season the mixture with salt, pepper, curry powder and turmeric – I would leave out the curry powder next time, but it happened.
Pour in the fish stock (ideally), add more chopped yellow peppers with cherry tomatoes and finally large prawns and clams.
Cover with a lid and simmer gently for about 15 minutes until the rice is soft and the prawns are pink. This was my first attempt at homemade paella, so I apologize that it’s not quite tip top. It will be better next time 🙂
