Paella Japonesa (How to Make Japanese-Style Paella) - Video Recipe

La paella es el plato tradicional de España, un rico arroz con mariscos.
Pero en Japón, mejillón y camarón con cabeza son muy caros, por eso cociné con ingredientes japoneses, por ejemplo hongos shimeji, almeja (en la temporada en Japón), y camarón sin cabeza (usado ingredientes muy económicos en Japón). Y también, no tenemos paellera por eso cociné en sartén.

Lo siento no es la paella Valenciana o España, pero te gustan mi receta!!!

Paella is a traditional dish from Spain, a very tasty rice dish with seafood.
But in Japan, mussel and head-on shrimp are very expensive, so I used Japanese ingredients, such as shimeji mushrooms, clams (in season now), and head-off shrimps. Also, we don't own paellera (paella pan) in Japanese households, so I used a frying pan (Tefal pan with removable handle).

Sorry this recipe is not from Valencia or Spain, but I hope you like my recipe!!!

Paella Japonesa (How to Make Japanese-Style Paella)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 40min
Number of servings: 3 people

Necessary Equipment:
26cm (10.2inch) frying pan

Ingredients:
180g (6.4oz.) chicken thigh without skin
3 bacon strips
6 large shrimps
120g (4.2oz.) squid body
200g (7.0oz.) clams
100g (3.5oz.) shimeji mushrooms
1 (75g=2.5oz.) small green pepper
1 (75g=2.5oz.) small red pepper
1 (200g=7.0oz.) tomato
1.5 cups = 240g (8.5oz.) rice
a pinch of saffron
350ml hot water
1/2 (100g=3.5oz.) onion
1 clove garlic
50ml white wine (or sake)
1 bouillon cube (or consomme cube)
1 bay leaf
2 tbsp. olive oil
lemon wedges

Directions:
1. If your clams have some sand in them, place the clams in a dark container and fill it with salted water (as salty as sea water). And let sit for several hours. The clams push salt water and sand out of their shells.
2. Soak a pinch of saffron in the 350ml hot water to extract the color.
3. Devein shrimps with shells using a bamboo skewer or a toothpick. Cut squid into rings. Cut chicken and bacon strips into bite-sized pieces. Break shimeji mushrooms into pieces. Mince the onion and garlic. Cut peppers into strips. Dice the tomato.
4. Heat the olive oil in a pan. Saute onion and garlic until fragrant. Add bacon, chicken, and squid, then cook until cooked through.. Then add rice and stir until evenly coated with oil.
5. Add white wine (or sake), saffron hot water (2.), bouillon cube (or consomme cube), bay leaf, shimeji mushrooms, and diced tomato. Cover (use a lid without a hole, or if you have a hole on your lid, seal it with aluminum foil) and bring to a boil on high heat for 5 minutes.
6. Add shrimps and clams on top of the rice. Cover and set to low heat and let it simmer for 13-15 minutes until water is absorbed and rice is cooked - you can quickly peep into the pot and check.
7. Arrange peppers on top, cover again, and steam on low heat for 5 minutes.
8. Uncover, and turn the heat to high until when you hear the crackling noise (until the liquid is gone).
9. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve directly from the pan.
