and just in case you guys wanna give it a go
here’s the recipe!

Ingredients :

1.25L (5 cups) of chicken stock
Pinch of saffron threads
2 chorizo sausages, thinly sliced (I only used one)
400g chicken fillets, cut into 3 cm pieces
8 green(mediums) prawns (we used 10 king prawns, and left all the shells intact)
200g of squid cut into rings
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 red capsicum, deseeded, thinly sliced (we left this out)
1 tsp paprika
440g (2 cups) medium-grain rice (we used aborio rice)
2 tomatoes, finely chopped (we used 1 1/2)

Steps :

1. Place the stock, saffron and water in a large saucepan.
Cover and bring to the boil. Remove from heat.

2. Cook the chorizo in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat,
turning once, for 3 mins or until crisp. Transfer to a plate.

3. Add the chicken to the pan and cook,
turning occasionally for 5 mins or until golden.
Transfer to the plate.

4. Add the onion to the pan and cook, stirring often for about 4 mins.
Add the garlic, capsicum and paprika and cook,
stirring for 1 minute. Add rice and stir to coat.
Stir in tomato. Add stock mixture and bring to boil.
Reduce heat and cook for 15 mins or until liquid is almost absorbed.

5. Add the chorizo, chicken, prawns and squid.
Cook, covered, for 5-10 mins or until all the liquid is absorbed.
Serve immediately.

ENJOY!
