  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 bunch Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed

Heat oil in a paella pan over medium-high heat. Saute the chorizo until browned, remove and set aside.

In the same pan saute the onion, garlic, and parsley. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes on a medium heat. Add in water, chicken stock, rice, saffron, and peas. Cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

While the rice is cooking, bring a medium pot of water to a boil and add shellfish. Cook until the shells on the clams and the mussels open.
