Paella de mariscos
(camarones,choritos y kanikama)












Mi amiga Manu que tiene un estupendo blog que se llama Cooking with Manu organizó algo que encontré super entretenido, la idea era mandar un ingrediente secreto a la persona que nos tocara, a mi me tocó la Paola, una mujer encantadora que vive en Milan, y le encanta cocinar!
Ella me mandó Azafrán y yo le mandé jengibre. nos llegaron a ambas el mismo dia los ingredientes asi que tuvimos que hacerlo rápido porque estabamos en la fecha.
Me encantó este evento y por supuesto quise hacer una paella esta vez de mariscos, el color es precioso gracias al azafrán nunca había visto uno tan  lindo.

Ingredientes

 1/2 cucharadita de hebras de azafrán
2  1/2 tazas de arroz de buena calidad
 1 litro de caldo de pescado o de verduras (se puede usar cubo)
300 gramos de camarones o gambas (frescas o congeladas)
29 gramos de choritos naturales o en tarro
100 gramos de kanikama o surimi (optativo)
3 cucharadas de aceite de oliva
1 cebolla morada grande cortada en cubos
2 dientes de ajo aplastados
3 tomates maduros cortados en cuartos
1 1/2 cucharada de perejil picado
1 cucharadita de tomillo
sal y pimienta

Preparacion

 Poner el azafrán   a remojar en 2 cucharadas de agua caliente.
Preparar un caldo ya sea cocinando un poco los camarones o los choritos o preparar un caldo con un cubo de verduras.
En un sartén grande o en una paellera colocar el aceite de oliva.
Agregar la cebolla picada y freir hasta que esté tierna.

Agregar el ajo y el azafran con el agua en que se remojó.
Cocinar por un minuto.
