Quick Paella with Shrimp & Mussels
Makes: 4 servings
Total Time: 40 minutes
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups instant brown rice
1 1/3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 large pinch saffron (see Note)
1 pound peeled and deveined raw shrimp (21-25 per pound)
1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
1 pound mussels, scrubbed well (see Tip)
4 lemon wedges (optional)
How To Fix It:
First off, heat the oil in your large skillet over medium heat. Next, add the garlic, onion, and bell pepper. Cook it, making sure to stir occasionally. The vegetables will soften, this should take about three minutes. Add your rice, salt, pepper, broth, thyme, and saffron. Bring it all to a boil over a medium heat. Cover it and cook for five minutes.
Now, stir in the shrimp and peas. Next, place the mussels on top the rice and and cover. Continue cooking until your mussels have gotten nice and open and your rice is tender. This should take about five minutes. Remove it from the heat and let sit, covered. In about five minutes most of the liquid is absorbed and it can be served with lemon wedges, if you’d like.
