I love me some shrimp. Paella is delicioso.. and I really was feelin’ it this week.. but really wasn’t feelin’ the price tage of the base of most paella’s.
Eye-ball it? Not so much. Most people over pour their oil when cooking. It would benefit you to measure your oils- saves fat and calories!
As you can clearly see.. I need a new saute pan.
Sauteing onion, pepper, and garlic. Again.. I would buy a candle in this flavor if their was one out there.
E-Z Peel shrimp, again- on sale this time! Nice
Add in the quicky brown rice and seasonings. You see the gorgeous red saffron powder and paprika?
Careful with the delicate peas! And I don’t even like peas that much.. but this was yum- and their color is outstanding.
Folding, folding.. tasting.. and another bite.
Maybe I should just plate myself a bowl already. Want some?
Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion and bell pepper; sauté 3 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring frequently. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add shrimp to pan; cook 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Add rice and next 5 ingredients (through pepper). Stir to combine, until seasoning is distibuted, shrimp is pink and rice is yellow in color. Remove from heat; fold in peas and lemon juice.
