Easy Paella

We have visited Spain a few times as a family and the kids love it. Great food, great people and most of the time great weather. We have always come back wanting to eat more of the delicious Spanish food.

After our last visit in the summer, I came home with a Spanish Paella Dish

So, keen to give it a go. We were having a cheap and easy version of this amazing dish.

Easy Paella

  • Although I used my new Paella dish, you could just use a wok or frying pan. After heating the oil, chuck the onion in and soften for about 5 minutes, add the chorizo and fry off until it starts to release its oils. Plonk in the turmeric and rice and stir through to coat all the grains. Add the stock and bring to a boil before simmering for about 15 minutes.
  • Chuck in the peas and seafood (defrosted) and cook for another 3-4 minutes or so, before serving.
  • There you have it, cheap, quick and delicious Spanish Paella. Give it a try and let me know how you get on.
