This kind of paella is a mix of seafood, a bit of fish (For get a strong taste) and rice, the regular also contains some meat (Chiken) but I prefer without.

This is my recipe (Sorry for the purists)

Is very easy, start with chopped onions, garlic, red pepper (No spicy) and peas fried in olive oil (Also a bay leaf), when this mix be poached, I add the fish (Usually hake chopped very small) and the sea food, when the seafood is fried (Not much just a bit), I add two or three big tomatoes in cubes (Without skin) and I cooking 5 mins, when the tomato became a puree I add the water to the pot (for 300g of rice usually 1L of water) (100g by person) and the spices. The spices are, paprika sweet and spicy (One coffe spoon of both), a bit of ground clove (just a bit this spice is very strong) and for get the color a bit of saffron and salt. When this mix have a taste like a fish soup (10min) I add the rice and waiting 15min (the rice becomes dry), when the rice is dry and a bit hard (near to finish like "al dente"), remove the pot from the heat and cover with a kitchen cloth and waith 5min, and enjoy. Best accompany with white wine like from Spain "Rias Baixas" (Best the Rosal type) or from Germany a Riesling, as well match very well with Champagne or Cava.

Of course, two at the same time for a stereo ;-)

ok Cal, I will try
its just something I made up

a big tomato surrounded by onion
centre of tomato is carefully removed
then cut, without opening it
a bit of salt
filled with youghurt, or similar
garlic, spices, and finished with olive oil on top
seems the oil flows nicely controlled onto the onion below

the yellow egg thing is old tradition
just egg, and nothing else
very little butter on the pan
moderate heat
and continiously scrape the egg into the middle of the pan
and bit by bit shape it
turn it over when its all together, and stable
switch off heat
its also traditionally used with smoked eel or salmon

Hello Tinny, please elaborate on the tomato preparation. I'm not a big fan of tomatoes myself, but I have family members that may enjoy that. How did you cook it? i.e. how long, what temperature, where in the oven, what type of pan, etc.

Thank you kind sir,

Dave Gerecke

hey, its fresh and 'raw', and so is the onions
and you could dress up with other vegetable
I just used what was in my reach, in a hurry

well, takes a bit of practice to remove center stalk of a tomato
and a really sharp knife for the cuts

Hmmm, the raw onions and garlic would be a bit much for my mother, but I can think of a few friends who may enjoy that dish. I'm going to have to remember that one.

I can also imagine that if one were to roast the tomato, with the onion and olive oil, adding the garlic somewhere during the process, then adding the yoghurt at the end might be tasty also!

Peace,

Dave Gerecke

hmm, baking the tomato and onions could be a nice option
takes more time ofcouse

but I think you need something other than youghurt with a hot tomato
maybe you could put the egg mass into the tomato
or cheese, feta would work well
maybe basilikum would work too

P.S. I would think some Brie or Camembert might be a good cheese inside also! Or maybe Mozzarella?!
