Re: Paella recipes

Clams are essential in the dish. Chicken, shrimp (with heads), lots of herbs and every now and then with squid/squid ink. Yum. Short grain rice is also a requirement, don't do it with basimati or other long grain rice. Use a really thick metal skillet - thin sided pans will not work as well.

Re: Paella recipes

Thought Id post a couple of pics of our last paella we had amongst friends down here since it has been a while...

it was a lobster and seafood paella with aioli! mmmmmmmmmmmmm!



and a close up:


I had just put in the lobster in after 10 min with the burners at max(lobster and clams where cooked off in the oil first a bit to add falvor to the base of the sofrito) after this you turn it down to a simmering heat enough to finish if the last 15 minutes or so...

this recipe had lobster, robalo, clams, squid, and shrimp...I made the stock with a type of catfish used down here for fish soup, lobster heads which I later cut in half and placed in the paella to release more flavor, and aromatics...


it was delicious!

enjoy!

Re: Paella recipes

thought you guys might like a simple AIOLI recipe too:

1 whole room temp egg, preferrably one that hasnt been refrigerated before
2 cloves small garlic or one big elephant one(softer taste)
big pinch of kosher or sea salt
half a squeeze of lime
a dash of olive oil and half a cup of veggie oil(canola works great)

Break the whole egg into a hand blender cup, make sure the yolk doesnt break chop the garlic into the egg close to the yolk, add other ingredients slowly with the lime juice over the yolk as well as the salt(this helps emulsify quickly)

put hand blender right over yolk and garlic it must cover the whole yolk...

start it up...after it has emulsified a bit slowly raise the blender a couple of times, have extra oil ready to add to the mix so you can make a bit more

after it has gotten thick stop, dont go more as it will get bitter

if needed thin down with another splash of lime juice, adjust salt and if needed a splash of water...

this is the base for any aioli pretty much and is the standard for fish, aioli potatoes, aioli for seafood paellas etc...

I also use this base to add to a nice fish stew or spanish bouillabase...!

mmmm!

cheers

Re: Paella recipes

I'm not that great of a cook but looking over this thread, it looks like I might give some of this a try.

Thanks for the info on the rice. I've been using basmati for a while and like it but I guess I'd have to find a different kind.

Everything on this thread looks so good. It's still morning and I'm already getting hungry.

Re: Paella recipes

use pre cooked rice...par boiled short grain if you want to save a few bucks, if not go all out with bomba, calasparra etc...

my advice is get the basics down first then use the real stuff on a really special paella...
