Stovetop Spanish Paella

Clam broth adds clam essence to this Spanish Paella. The original uses a Paella pan over a fire, but we use a covered pan on the stovetop and capture the smoky flavor by adding smoked chorizo. Serves 6-8

1 lb mussels/little neck clams, cleaned

½ lb boneless skinless chicken thighs

1 lb medium shrimp, peeled, deveined

12 oz cooked smoked chorizo sausage

5 Tbsp olive oil

5 cloves garlic minced

2 bay leaves

1 small onion minced

2 bell peppers cut in strips

2 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped

2 cups rice

2 envelopes St. Ours Clam Broth

3 cups chicken stock

¼ tsp saffron (optional)

½ tsp black pepper

1 tsp paprika

¾ cup frozen peas or lima beans

1 small jar pimento, 1 lemon

Dissolve St. Ours Clam Broth into 2 cups hot water, add the bay leaves and saffron, set aside. Cut the chicken into strips, season with salt and pepper. Add 2 Tbsp oil to pan, heat on medium hi until shimmering, brown the chicken, set aside. Add sliced chorizo, pepper and onions, sauté until edges brown, set aside. Heat 3 Tbsp of olive oil in the pan, add tomato (skinned, seeded, and chopped), garlic, paprika and black pepper, cook a few minutes. Add rice stirring so it does not stick, cook about 2 minutes until the grains are opaque. Add the seasoned St. Ours Clam Broth and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, stirring so no rice sticks. Reduce heat, simmer covered until the broth is at the level of the rice, about 10 minutes. Increase heat to medium, stir in the chicken, sausage, pepper mixture and shrimp, place mussels/clams on top of the rice, cook covered until the liquid is absorbed and a crust begins to form on the bottom, about 10 minutes. Turn heat down to low, fold in frozen peas without disturbing the bottom crust. Taste for seasoning, add 1 cup water, cook covered 5 minutes. Turn heat off, rest covered 10 minutes. Remove bay leaves and any unopened clams/mussels. Garnish with pimento strips and lemon wedges.

Clam and Green Tomato Risotto

Clam broth base adds depth of flavor to this simple yet nicely textured risotto. The enhanced flavor will make you feel satisfied without cheese. Serves 4

1 lb clams, cleaned

2 envelopes St. Ours Clam Broth

2 green zebra tomatoes

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp butter

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 medium shallot, finely chopped

¾ cup risotto or sticky (sushi) rice

¼ cup dry white wine

sea salt

freshly ground white pepper

2 Tbsp Italian parsley, finely chopped

1 chili, chopped

1 lemon

Heat a skillet on medium, melt the butter. Stir in garlic, cook 1 minute, add clams and white wine, bring to a boil, then cook covered 5 minutes. Throw out any clams that did not open. Take the good clams and remove the part that covers the “neck” or siphon and remove the clams from the shells, set aside. Reduce skillet to low, dissolve St. Our Clam Broth in 2 ½ cups hot water, mix into skillet, leave on low heat. In a large pot, heat olive oil on medium until shimmering, stir in shallot, reduce heat to low, cook slowly until brown, about 10 minutes. Turn heat to medium, add rice, stir for 2 minutes. Finely chop one tomato, add to pot with ½ cup of the warm broth from the skillet, bring to a gently boil, reduce heat to low. When the broth is absorbed* continue to add warm broth, ½ cup at a time, stirring after each addition, this process takes 15 minutes. Taste, rice should be al dente, salt if needed. Coarse chop the other tomato, gently stir into the pot with clam meat, parsley and pepper. Remove from the heat. Serve with cut lemon and chili. Eat it as soon as possible!

*To tell if the stock has absorbed into the rice, drag the back of your spoon through the rice along the bottom of the pot. If the line stays drawn in the pot, the liquid has been absorbed. If the rice flows back to cover the line quickly, keep stirring until the liquid is absorbed.
