As you may or may not know, I live in England so my ingredients may be different than what’s available for you. 90% of my visitors are from the US. I was talking to my sister back home in NJ yesterday and she didn’t know what Chorizo was. If you can’t get your hands on it, I’m sure andouille sausage will fit the bill just fine.
- 4 cups Chicken Stock
- 1/2 teaspoon saffron threads
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 14 oz chorizo sausage cut into slices
- 1 Large onion chopped
- 3 garlic cloves chopped
- 14 oz raw shrimp cleaned
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 2 cups long grain rice
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 canned chopped tomatoes (14oz)
- A good handful of fresh parsley chopped
Bring stock to a simmer in a saucepan; add the saffron and leave to infuse.
Heat the oil in a shallow pan on medium high heat and fry the chorizo until it starts to brown and release it’s orange colored oils. Add the onion and continue to fry until the onion has softened. Add the garlic and fry another minute.
Add the shrimp and sauté until pink (about 2-3 minutes). Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside.
Add the white wine and allow to almost fully evaporate before adding the rice. Coat the rice with the other ingredients and then add the stock, paprika, tomatoes and parsley. Bring to a boil before reducing the heat. Cover and leave to simmer 15-20 or until the rice is tender.
Remove from the heat, add the shrimp mix to warm with the cooked rice and serve.
