Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Heat 3 tbsp oil in a large cast iron skillet or paella pan over med/high heat, add chorizo and sauté until browned about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove and set aside leaving juices in pan.
Lower heat to medium and add in diced yellow onion, red bell pepper, smoked paprika, pinch of salt & pepper. Sauté for 3-4 minutes until onions and peppers begin to soften. Add in the minced garlic and cook an additional minute until fragrant. Add 1/4 dry white wine and allow alcohol to cook off and liquid to reduce by half, about 2 minutes.
Add in the can of diced tomatoes, seafood broth, and clam juice. Bring to a boil. Add in a pinch of saffron threads, chorizo, and rice. Stir the rice once so that the liquid is covering, lower the heat to low, cover, and simmer undisturbed for 15 minutes. (This allows rice to get crispy layer on the bottom).
After 15 minutes, remove the cover, and there should still be liquid that hasn't absorbed yet. Add in the frozen peas, stir to combine. Then add the seafood on top, with the opening of the clams/mussels facing up for them to easily open. Cover and cook an additional 15-20 minutes, until the clams/mussels have opened, and shrimp are pink/cooked through. Discard any mussels that have not opened. If clams are still shut, take a knife and try to wiggle it open to see if the muscles release and it opens.
Remove from heat, top with freshly chopped parsley, serve with fresh lemon wedges and a bowl to discard shells in.
