"skinny" paella ♥

Here is a great paella recipe using brown rice! Healthy friday fish dinner..enjoy! ♥

  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Yellow Onion
  • Sweet Green Peas
  • Garlic
  • Capers
  • Parsley
  • Squid
  • Mussels
  • Shrimp
  • Salmon
  • Vegetable Broth
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Sweet Paprika
  • Saffron
  • Brown Rice
  • Lemons
  • Salt + Pepper
  1. Using my method of pre-cooking the rice in a rice cooker, do so according to package/instructions. Be sure to infuse the cooking liquid with saffron.
  2. About 15-20 minutes prior to the rice being done, start prepping the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Rub sweet and smoked paprika as well as salt + pepper onto the salmon.
  4. In a paella pan over medium heat, brown the salmon for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and set aside beneath tented aluminum foil.
  5. Drizzle in a little oil to the pan and sauté chopped garlic, chopped onions, and chopped parsley. Lower the heat and let simmer.
  6. Raise the heat up to medium and fold the cooked rice into the pan, allowing the garlic, onions, and parsley to meld into the rice. Season with salt + pepper.
  7. Add chopped red bell pepper, green peas, and capers as you sauté the ingredients. Allow the rice to capture each ingredient.
  8. Toss in the spices – smoked paprika and sweet paprika.
  9. Add the squid, salmon (flesh removed from the skin and broken into small chunks with hands), and mussels.
  10. Pour in a little vegetable broth, reduce the heat, close the lid, and let cook for 12 minutes.
  11. Once the 12 minutes are up, open up the lid and add the shrimp. They will only need about 5-8 minutes of cooking time.
  12. Once the shrimp have cooked, garnish the pan with extra chopped parsley and lemon wedges.  enjoy! ♥
