EASY SEAFOOD PAELLA
COOKBOOK: Magazine Cut Out
Delicious! This recipe mentions mixed marinara which you can buy from your local supermarket in the frozen food aisle or your local seafood shop. I had smoked salmon pieces, octopus and prawns which I defrosted and cooked up for this paella. I did cook the salmon separately because these fillets cook in minutes and are not very firm in texture. I added the cut up cooked salmon at the end of the recipe and it was delicious.
Definitely an easy recipe to follow but ‘easy' does not refer to in anyway as a ‘quick’ recipe. It will take some time to prep (unless you buy the pre mixed marinara). There is still many more ingredients that require chopping and this can be time consuming.
Worth the preparation time? Absolutely YES YES YES!!
1 tablespoon olive oil
100g chorizos, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 medium red capsicum, chopped
2 cups medium grain white rice
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 cup chicken stock (and 1 cup of water)
1 cup frozen peas
400g canned tomatoes, crushed
500g marinara mix (or separate mixed seafood pieces)
300g white fish fillet (although I did use salmon and it was delicious)

Add the capsicum, rice and turmeric, cook for 1 minute. Stir chicken stock , one cup of water, peas and tomatoes.
