Paella Recipe Step by Step

  Hello, everybody it has been very long time I'm away from you guys I do apologize.
Today I’m going to show you how to cook Paella! Yeah Paella is one of my favorite seafood recipes, although it is a Spanish recipe but it is very famous recipe in north of Morocco.
Paella is a very rich dish made with a little bit of everything that was on hand. Fresh seafood, saffron and earthy paprika are the key ingredients in this traditional Spanish dish.

How to make Paella?


1 onion, finely chopped
 1 yellow capsicum, seeded, finely chopped
 4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 large ripe tomatoes, halved, finely chopped
 2 teaspoons mild paprika
 1 cup (200g) medium grain rice
 3 cups or seafood stock ( I used just squid)
 12 (about 1kg) green king prawns, cleaned leaving heads and tails intact
1/4 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/2 teaspoon saffron threads
 1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons mild paprika
2 teaspoons Cumin
Bay leaves (depending on your taste)
 Lemon wedges, to serve


Combine olive oil, onions, red capsicum and garlic in a large paella or large frying pan over medium heat. After 5 minutes add all spices, bay leaves, saffron and the squid.

Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring, for 3 minute or until aromatic. Add the rice, stock and add o glass of water and bring to the boil.
Keep stirring for 1 minute .Reduce heat to low and cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until rice is almost tender.
