Paella makes an excellent dish for an informal party.

What You Need:
  • 8 cooked mussels
  • 1 cup rice
  • 4 cooked Dublin Bay prawns
  • ˝ cup frozen or tinned peas
  • 1 small cooked lobster (optional)
  • 2-3 globe artichokes
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • ˝ a small raw chicken
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • A little powdered saffron
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • ˝ tin of pimiento
  • 2 medium-sized tomatoes

  • How To Cook:
    1. Shell the mussels and prawns, and remove the lobster meat from the shell.

    2. Cut up the chicken.

    3. Heat some oil in the paella dish (a type of shallow casserole) and fry the chicken until brown, then boil it in 3 cups of water for 20 minutes.

    4. Meanwhile cook the onion gently in the fat used for the chicken, add the finely chopped garlic, and then the tomatoes, and fry till cooked.

    5. Add the rice and mix well with the fat, without frying.

    6. Arrange the peas, mussels, lobster, prawns, chicken and artichokes attractively on top of the rice, and add 2 cups of boiling chicken broth. (Keep the remaining broth in case the rice requires more liquid.)

    7. When the rice boils, add salt to taste, and the saffron, blended with a little broth.

    8. Place the pimiento decoratively on top, and continue to cook until the rice is done - 15-20 minutes in all the paella can be cooked in the oven for the last 5 minutes or so, if desired.

    9. Serve immediately, in the casserole.

    To Serve: 4 - 6
