Seafood Paella recipe


  • 1 cup Olive Oil

  • 3 cloves Garlic (chopped)

  • 2 Red Chillies (chopped)

  • 1 tsp of Anchovies (optional)

  • 1 or 2 Squid tubes cut into 2cm squares or 1cm rings

  • 500g washed Mussels

  • 500g peeled Green Prawns

  • 250g washed Pippies (if available)

  • 650g boned Chicken thighs, cut into large chunks

  • 200g smoked Pork belly (kaiser flesch from your deli), diced

  • 200g sliced Chorizo

  • 1 Spanish Onion, chopped

  • 1 Red Capsicum, sliced into strips

  • 1 small packet of dried Peas (try to avoid frozen or canned)

  • 500g Paella, Arborio or Basmati rice

  • 2 tsp Screaming Seeds Spice Co. Paella Blend (or to taste)

  • 1L Chicken or Vegetable stock

  • 150ml Dry White Wine (or other liquid (ie. water) as required)

  • 2 Lemons, cut into wedges

  • Chopped Parsley



                                          Cook in either a wok, a traditional paella pan or a large frypan that is oven friendly.



                                          1. Stir oil, garlic, chillies and anchovies in hot wok for 30 seconds.

                                          2. Add the mussels and cook for two minutes (or until opened).

                                          3. Add squid, prawns, and pippies until the prawns are ‘just’ pink. Remove from the pan – set aside, leaving juices in the pan.

                                          4. Add chicken, pork, and chorizo and cook for two minutes. Add onion, capsicum and peas, stirring.

                                          5. Add rice and Screaming Seeds Spice Co. Paella Blend and stir well.

                                          6. Turn the oven on to 200 degrees.

                                          7. Add stock and wine and cook stirring like a risotto for 12 minutes.

                                          8. Take off the stove and with flair, arrange the seafood on a pan.

                                          9. Place in the oven for about 10 more minutes or until rice is cooked.

                                          10. Remove, sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
