4 Msp Saffron tdreads
0.5 l Chicken soup
1 Stk Finely chopped onion
2 Stk Garlic cloves
1 Stk Red bell pepper
2 Stk Peeled and deseeded tomatoes

1 Prise Pepper
1 Prise Salt

Preparation

  1. For the Spanish Paella, cut the chicken and pork into approximately 2 cm cubes.
  2. Remove the beards from the mussels using kitchen scissors and clean them under cold running water (definitely discard any open mussels that do not close when pressed with a finger!). Steam the mussels in salted water until they open. (Definitely remove any mussels that do not open!)
  3. Peel the shrimp, removing the digestive tract except for the tail. Clean the shrimp under cold water.
  4. Peel and clean the squid, remove the skin, the shield, and rinse well under cold water. Then cut into not too thin rings, set aside the tentacles.
  5. Cut the peppers in half, remove the seeds and core, and cut into approximately 2 cm diamonds. Cut the peeled and deseeded tomatoes into sixths.
  6. In a special paella pan or another large pan, sauté the onion, garlic, and rice in olive oil until translucent.
  7. Add chicken broth, add the saffron threads. Add the meat cubes, peppers, and tomatoes to the rice. Season with salt and pepper, bring to a boil briefly. Add the bay leaf and simmer covered over low heat for about 20 minutes (add a little liquid if necessary).
  8. Lastly, distribute the shrimp, squid, tentacles, and mussels in their shells over the rice and simmer covered for another 5 minutes.
