The Paella Is in The Pan

Shrimp Paella impresses everyone, because it’s such a deep mix of so many healthy, succulent ingredients.

The secret to Shrimp Paella is simple—use the right pan. The perfect pan for paella is wide, shallow and round. The pan’s width enhances your Shrimp Paella by keeping as much rice as possible close to the heat. The juice from the shrimp stays close to the heat, too, and fills your home with a warm invitation to sit and eat.

Step 1

Heat oil in 10”-12” paella pan (or large skillet) over medium-high heat. Add onions and chorizo; cook until onions are tender and chorizo turns golden brown, about 7 minutes. Stir in garlic; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds more.

Step 2

Add 1 ¾ cups water to pan; bring to boil. Stir in contents of yellow rice mix and Alcaparrado. Boil rice mixture 1 minute; tightly cover pan. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 12 minutes. Add shrimp; simmer for about 13 more minutes, until rice is tender and water is absorbed.

Step 3

Arrange pimiento strips over rice; sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately.
