Paella My Way

Paella My Way - Food, Fun, Whatever !!

The plan was for a seafood stew along the lines of cioppino with a tomato base and good read wine but… it was more than 70-degrees today (October… really!? Boo!). Not really “stew” weather so I switch to a Paella dish.. my version.

Started with chopped red and green bell pepper and onion sauteed in a little olive oil then added in 1 1/2c converted white long grain rice and sauteed slightly.

Add in six large tiger shrimp, six scallops, 1/4lb salmon fillet cut into small pieces – bring everything to a boil, cover and reduce the temperature to a steady simmer for 20 minutes until the rice is cooked

The 20-minutes cooking time worked perfectly for all of the seafood
