Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large paella or non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion, capsicums and garlic, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion has softened.
  2. Add tomato and paprika and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add rice and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until rice is almost tender and liquid has almost absorbed.
  3. Arrange prawns and vongole over top of rice mixture, pushing into paella slightly. Cook, covered, for 8–10 minutes or until prawns change colour and vongole open (discard any unopened vongole).
  4. Scatter broad beans and peas over paella and cook, covered, for 2 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Steamed green beans. TIP: Buy vongole on the day you wish to cook them so they are as fresh as possible. Before cooking, check the shells and discard any that remain open when you gently tap them.
