PAELLA WITH SEAFOOD…. is Magical dinner at the beach! We live in a small fishing village at the sea. It gives acces to very fresh fish and shellfish of excellent quality. And I love it. So naturally we often eat fresh seafood. Today we use fresh Danish SQUID, Turbot or Cod and Tails of Norwegian Lobsters from http://www.fiskehuset-gilleleje.dk/ The Danish Squid has ten arms. I did add Danish Seaweed from http://www.nordisktang.dk/ Seaweed is healthy ”super food”.Ingredients: PAELLA/SEAFOOD: 2 Squid, fresh; 150 g Turbot or Cod fillets (without skin); Norwegian Lobster tails; 2 lemons; Olive oil; 375 g Paella or Risotto rice; ½ teaspoon Saffron threads + 2 tablespoons Warm water; 1¼ liter boiling fish-flavor bouillon-water; Seaweed; salt & pepper. VEGETABLES: 1 Red Onion, 2 Garlic, pressed; 225 g Tomatoes; 1 Chili; Olive oil;
HOW TO DO: Prepare the vegetables first. Clean and rinse vegetables. Chop the onion. Press garlic. Remove seeds in Chili and chop it. Put Saffron threads in the warm water – set aside for a couple of minutes.SEAFOOD: SQUID: This is an 10-armed Danish Squid. Remove the black/ greyish thing on the squid. Please see on photo. Pull out/Remove the cartilage. It’s the sort of ”sceleton” of the Squid.Cut the Squid in pieces. FISH: Put Cod (Turbot) fillet in a pot with barely boilling fish bouillon water. Poach fish 5 minutes. Remove fish from pot and put in strainer and rinse with cold water. Put Squid and Norwegian Lobster-tails in the bouillon and cook 2 minutes. Cut Cod fillet in pieces and set aside with Squid and Norwegian Lobster-tails. Leave the bouillon simmer. PAELLA: Heat oil in Paella-pan. (I had to use a large Pot instead LOL. ). Fry 1 minute Onion. Add Garlic, Chili and ”Saffron in water” stirring. Add Tomatoes and fry 2 minutes, stirring. Add Rice. Add most of fish-bouillon and heat to boiling. Simmer without lid for 10 minutes. Season – add some Seaweed. Cook 10 minutes – or until rice is almost tender. Add more fish-bouillon if necessary. Add Cod, Squid, Norwegian Lobster-tails and cook 1-2 minutes. When ready – remove from heat. Serv with Lemons cut in halves. SERVING: We love this Paella with seafood – fresh Squid, Cod, Norwegian Lobster-tails – it’s magic 🙂 Bon appetit !
