    Default Paella

    1lb. med. shrimp, peeled and deveined
    4 lobster tails, split
    12 clams
    12 mussels
    8oz. of cooked ground sausage
    8 chicken thighs
    4oz. pepperoni, sliced
    1 can artichoke hearts, quartered
    1sm. can balck olives, sliced
    7oz. jar pimentos, sliced
    3 c. rice
    1c. clam juice or fish stock
    3c. water
    2c. chicken stock
    1 green pepper, chopped
    1 onion, chopped
    8 cloves garlic, chopped
    2 bay leaves
    4T. sofrito (optional)
    1/3 c. olice oil
    lemons and chopped parsley for garnish
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat the olive oil in a skillet or paella pan. Brown chicken thighs until nearly cooked. Remove from pan. Add shrimp and stir fry for 30 seconds, or until pink. Remove from pan. Saute lobster tails, turning until shells turn pink. Remove. Add onion, pepper, and garlic and cook until onions are softened, add sofrito, stir. Add rice and cook about 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Add stock, water, and bay leaves. Simmer until rice is somewhat tender, but chewy, about 15 min. Again, stirring frequently. Stir in artichokes, black olives, and pimentos. Carefully stir in shrimp and sausage. Push in chicken, clams, and mussels. Set lobster tails on top in a spiral, meat down. Cover and bake 25 min., or until rice is tender. Check for doneness, remove from oven and cover with foil or kitchen towel. Let stand for 10 min. Garnish with parsley and lemons.

    Sure! It's a good thing that I work alot, or I would weigh 800lbs! This dish is even better if you add stone crab claws, or king crab.

    OH MY! Darwin has made paella several times but we have not used the lobster or crab, or artichoke hearts in it. Gotta try that! This is a fabulous dish, Aaron, we'll try your recipe. Thanks!!!
