What I Made Today… Paella!

Paella literally means frying pan in Latin, and is a typical Spanish rice dish cooked in a pan.

1 yellow onion
1 cup small chopped carrots
¼ cup of Goya peas
4 garlic cloves
½ leek shredded
1 cup white rice (Whole Foods has a paella rice, but if you can not get it there white rice will work)
1 box chicken stock
2 tbsp Goya Adobo seasoning
4-5 saffron threads
10 oz white fish (I like halibut)
1 cup shrimp, 20-32 count
1 chicken breast
2 lemons
1 bunch parsley (for garnish)


Chop all ingredients to equal size. Chop chicken and fish into equal pieces, peel shrimp and butterfly. In a large deep sauté pan, heat up the oil and sauté the onions, carrots, leek and garlic. Cook until soft, glistening and very aromatic. Add rice, salt, pepper and spices. Heat chicken stock with saffron threads. Add chicken stock, chicken and cover. Simmer for about 30-45 minutes. Halfway through, throw in the fish. Chop parsley and sprinkle over the top, and squeeze lemon over it as well. Serve!
