Seafood Paelle




It is the festive season, a summer Xmas in New Zealand. There is plenty of seafood available to make this flavoursome and colorful dish. It is perfect to feed a crowd at a party. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice over it, grab a glass of wine and share with friends on a perfect summer’s day. Life can’t get any better!

It’s a dish with lots of ingredients but cooking is not as complicated as it looks.

  • In a non-stick pot, add half a cup of cooking oil and half a chopped onion. Fry the onion until softened.
  • Stir in two chopped tomatoes, one table spoon of tomato puree, two teaspoons of smoked paprika and a pinch of salt.
  • Add some chicken pieces, two cups of rice, 2 cups of water, mix together and turn down to a simmer, stirring from time to time.
  • After around 15 minutes, when the rice is nearly cooked, stir in chopped capsicum, prawn, mussels, squid and clams or any seafood you like.  Cook on low heat for another 10 minutes.
  • Serve with chopped coriander or parsley and a wedge of lemon.
