It’s a great September day. Cooling down from the summer but really sunny. It’s warm in the sun and you can walk in your tshirt today if you’re not walking on the shadow side of the way. So theoretically I should be sitting on the terrace enjoying a white wine while chatting with my friends. But in practice I’m figuring out how to make a quick paella! I wasn’t sure how to call this dish because it’s not really a paella but not really risotto as well. Maybe you know a good name?
What you need: Risotto, chorizo, onion, paprika, saffron, tomato paste, broth (about 750ml), peas and seafood.
Step 1: slice the chorizo in little pieces and fry it in a pan
Step 2: slice the onion and paprika
Step 3: put the fried chorizo onto a plate and fry the onion and paprika in the same pan
Step 4: add the risotto and wait until the rice shines (do you say it like that?). I didn’t have that much risotto left, you can use more if you want (300 grams should be fine)
Step 5: add the tomato paste and saffron
Step 6: Add the broth, one bit at a time until the rice is done.
Step 7: add the peas and let it stir for a while
Step 8: now add the seafood and risotto
And your very quick risotto paella is done!
