Paella


You will find countless versions of this marvelous dish, which consists of herbed rice, pork, chicken, and shellfish. According to legend, it was brought to Spain by the Moors and quickly adopted by all Mediterranean countries. Inventive chefs vary the basic recipe to suit their own tastes, and you can do the same. Paella makes a great buffet supper dish, served with a green salad and hot buttered French bread.




Ingredients:

1/4 cup olive or salad oil
2 medium onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups long grain white rice
teaspoon saffron
3 cups hot chicken broth
4 slices bacon, partially cooked and cut into small strips
1 16-ounce can tomatoes

1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1pound halibut, red snapper, or mahi mahi, cut into bite-sized chunks
1 pound shrimp, cooked, peeled, and deveined
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon oregano
teaspoon tarragon
3 whole chicken breasts, cut in half, browned and cooked
6 raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
