  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 1 leek or onion, sliced
  • 110g chorizo sausage. Chopped
  • 1tsp turmeric
  • 300g long grain rice
  • 1ltr hot fish or chicken stock
  • 200g frozen peas

It's a good idea to keep a close eye on your paella and keep stirring often, adding a little stock every now and again if it gets too dry.


  1. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan.
  2. Saute the leek or onion for 5 mins (avoid browning).
  3. Add the chorizo and fry until it releases oils.
  4. Stir in the turmeric and rice until coated by the oil.
  5. Pour in the stock and bring to the boil, then simmer for 15 mins, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the peas and cook for 5 mins.
  7. Stir in the seafood to heat through for 2 mins or until rice is cooked.
  8. Season and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
