How to Make Spanish Paella

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 10 steps you must follow to make Spanish Paella in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Plate chicken thighs and sprinkle thyme, paprika, salt, & pepper on both sides and let stand for about 10 minutes.
  • Step 2
  • Heat the olive oil in a paella pan (or very large fry pan) over medium heat. Place chicken in the pan and brown on both sides for 5 minutes per side. Turn the chicken over again, and add the chorizo sausage.
  • Step 3
  • Brown both sides of chicken and sausage for 4 minutes per side. When the oil begins to turn a mild reddish color, remove the chicken and sausage to a platter.
  • Step 4
  • Lower the heat (medium-low) and sauté onion and bell pepper for 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add tomatoes, cook until the mixture thickens a bit and the flavors begin to meld. Season lightly with salt & pepper and coriander.
  • Step 5
  • Fold in the rice with a spoon, stirring to coat the grains. Sprinkle the saffron threads into the rice. Pour in the chicken stock, simmer for 10 minutes. Rotate the pan around the heat so that the rice cooks evenly and starts to absorb the liquids. [Do not cover or stir]
  • Step 6
  • Add the shrimp and fish evenly around the pan. Next add the chicken and the sausage (sliced 1/2”). Gently fold all of the pan pieces together with a large spoon, turning the mixture over a 3-4 times.
  • Step 7
  • Place the mussels (or clams) evenly around the pan. Let this simmer without stirring, until the rice is al dente, about 15 minutes.
  • Step 8
  • Scatter the thawed peas on top, continue to cook for 5 minutes. Cover the pan (with a round pizza pan) until the paella looks fluffy and moist and the mussels have opened.
  • Step 9
  • Uncover the pan and drizzle squeezed lemon juice over the paella. Remove any un-opened mussels (or clams). Take the pan off of the heat and allow it to rest for a few minutes and garnish the top with chopped parsley.
  • Step 10
  • Bring the pan to the table served warm using a large spoon to serve. Use lemon wedges on the plates for a garnish. Serve with home-made Sangria (yes!) or your favorite beverage.
