Mediterranean Seafood Paella

Sauté aromatics: Begin by sautéing onions, garlic, and bell peppers in olive oil until softened and fragrant. 

Toast rice and saffron: Add Arborio rice or Spanish short-grain rice to the pan and toast it with saffron threads until fragrant. 

Add tomatoes and paprika: Incorporate diced tomatoes and Spanish paprika into the mixture, stirring until the tomatoes break down. 

Pour broth and simmer: Pour in chicken or vegetable broth, enough to cover the rice, and simmer uncovered until most of the liquid is absorbed. 

Arrange seafood: Nestle cleaned and prepared seafood such as shrimp, mussels, clams, and squid on top of the rice mixture. 

Cover and steam: Cover the paella pan and continue to cook until the seafood is cooked through and the mussels and clams have opened. 

Rest and garnish: Remove from heat and let the paella rest for a few minutes before garnishing with fresh parsley. 

Serve hot: Serve the Mediterranean Seafood Paella directly from the pan, accompanied by lemon wedges for squeezing over the dish. Enjoy the flavors of the sea and the Mediterranean!
