  • Olive oil
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 2 TBS flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped, divided
  • 1 cup canned pureed tomatoes
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 12 fresh mussels, scrubbed
  • 16 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 red pepper, diced

  • 11â�„2 cup rice
  • 3 cups fish or chicken stock
  • pinch saffron threads
  • 11â�„2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1â�„2 tsp. black pepper
Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large skillet and sauté onion, parsley and 3 cloves garlic for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tomato puree and 2 tsp. paprika and cook until liquid from tomato has evaporated. Transfer into a small bowl and wipe pan clean.
Steam mussels in 1�2 cup water over low heat for 5 minutes. Set aside.
Heat 1 TBS olive oil. Add rest of garlic and the shrimp and cook for 3 minutes, tossing occasionally. Remove from pan and add pepper. Set aside.
Heat 2 TBS olive oil over medium heat and cook diced peppers for 6 minutes. Add tomato mixture to pan along with rice and cook for a minute, stirring to coat grains. Add heated stock, saffron, sea salt and pepper. Stir and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes uncovered without stirring. Lower heat to a gentle simmer and cook for 15 minutes without stirring. Turn the heat up for a minute so the rice on the bottom toasts.
Add shrimp and mussels to rice and cover. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
