Last Nights Dinner

Olive oil
Garlic clove
1 Chopped onion
Paella rice
1 Red pepper
2 Chopped tomatoes
Half bottle white wine
Handful large prawns
Handful small prawns
Handful mussels
Half pound or 400 grams chicken fillets
Half pound or 400 grams white fish
Small chorizo sausage
1 Stock cube
Handful of peas
Saffron strands


Fry chopped onion and garlic in a little olive oil
Add paella rice and fry for a few minutes
Add chopped chicken and fry until lightly browned
Add chorizo at this point and fry a little to release the oils
Put saffron and stock cube in a mug and cover with boiling water
Pour a little wine into the paella and stir
Add the wine in small amounts until reduced
Now add the stock cube mixture and saffron through a sieve to leave saffron strands behind
When the rice is cooked add the peas and the white cubed fish
Put the chopped tomato and prawns and mussels into the pan and warm through for a few more minutes
Decorate with chopped herbs and serve

This was only my second attempt at Paella and it turned out really well. Do try it.
