Ingredients

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 8 ounces chorizo or kielbasa
  • 1 7-ounce ham steak
  • 1 12-ounce jar roasted red peppers
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 1 pound bag saffron rice
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen peas
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • Chef notes

    This savory one pot paella is filled with shrimp, chorizo, and peas.

    Preparation

    1.

    In a large sauté pan (with a lid), warm oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and chorizo; stirring occasionally, cook until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

    2.

    Into the sauté pan, stir in ham and roasted red peppers. Cook for just a couple minutes. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper and saffron rice—stir to combine ingredients together. Pour in chicken broth.

    3.

    Bring mixture to a boil; cover with lid or a double layer of foil over the entire pan. Reduce heat to low or medium-low so mixture is at a simmer. Cook until broth is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

    4.

    Remove lid or foil and gently stir in shrimp and peas. Cover and cook until shrimp are pink, about 6 minutes. Garnish with parsley, if desired, and serve.
