Step 4
6-8 Ozs Frozen Green Peas
6-8 Ozs Squid
1 Cup Cooked Chicken Thighs, cut into small pieces.
1 Lb Scallops, Bay
Quartered artichoke hearts, pickled (optional)
Step 5
12-15 Pieces Fresh Asparagus
Step 6
12-15 Fresh Mussels, regular or New Zealand Green Lips
1-2 Cups Cooked Blue Crab Claw Meat
12-15 Shrimp, 16-20 count, may be peeled or not

1 Mise En Place:



Step 1
1 Bring BGE up to 350°F and use the grate to hold the paella pan. 2-3 ozs EVOO to sauté onion and chorizo. Little cherry wood chips for flavor.


Step 2
1 After the onions are translucent add the rice and get coated with oil and drippings from chorizo.





Step 3
1 Add liquid and saffron and bring to a boil.



Step 4
1 Add peas and squid.
Step 5
1 20-22 minutes of cooking add the seafood, turning the mussels and shrimp so when they open the hinge is at the bottom for presentation. When the seafood is done about 10-12 minutes and the liquid is gone, remove and let rest for 10-15 minutes. If the liquid is not gone and the shrimp are done, remove them.
