Seafood Paella

Mike and his cousin went scalloping on Friday so I needed a scallop recipe. I found this seafood paella recipe which was so easy and very tasty as well. Here's the recipe - enjoy!

8 oz. chicken tenders - cut into cubes
8 oz. jumbo shrimp
8 oz. sea scallops
8 oz. fresh fish cut into cubes (I used talapia)
4 tsp Creole seasoning
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup Chicken broth
2 oz. chorizo (casing off and diced)
mussels (debearded and scrubbed) (I used about a pound)
1/4 cup green peas
4 cups cooked yellow rice

1. Season the chicken, fish, shrimp and scallops separately using 1 tsp creole seasoning for each.

2. Heat oil in skillet large enough to hold all ingredients. Start with the chicken, sauteing until partially cooked through, then ass the scallops, fish and shrimp. Saute for a few minutes until the seafood is nearly cooked through.

3. Add the chicken broth, chorizo, and mussels. Simmer until the mussels open. Discard any any that do not open.

4. Last, add the green peas and yellow rice, stirring frequently to make sure all the ingredients are evenly mixed.

5. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
