Clam & Chorizo Paella






  • 1kg OmegaTM Clams

  • 2 cups (500ml) good fish stock

  • 1/4 teaspoon saffron threads 1 each

  1. Drain the clams from the packets reserving 1 cup of the liquid. Combine the liquid with the stock and bring to the boil.

  4. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the onion and sauté over low heat, until softened.

  5. Add the garlic and peppers.

  6. Sprinkle in the rice and stir-fry for 1 minute.

  7. Bring the stock to the boil again and add to the pan together with the saffron mixture and tomatoes.

  8. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 12 minutes, until the rice has absorbed most of the stock.
