Exquisito¡¡¡¡¡¡ Our Christmas Eve Paella

Our Christmas Eve Paella is about to get consumed. A lengthy preparation, a couple of oops moments, like when we realized the paella pan is too big for the oven door to close. Oh well. It still looks scrumptious.

Cooked the chicken first, then added the chirico, onions, garlic.
Pequillo peppers next
Then rice
Then parsley
Then all the safrron and smoked paprika steeped chicken broth
Then cook and stir
Add the peas
Add the lobster back, the chicken, the shrimp, the mussels

It’s in the oven now……….waiting waiting waiting waiting……

It was just as delicious as we hoped with one minor exception – the mussels were a bit overcooked and shriveled. Live and learn.

  1. Looks amazing EOS. The clams and mussels are always a challenge. I cheat by steaming them separately and then placing them on the paella for ogling just before the presentation to guests.
