Line a baking sheet with a Silpat, or a non-stick silicone baking liner. Put the oil and syrup in a large pan. Pour in the sugar so it's evenly distributed on the bottom. Heat over medium heat without stirring until the sugar has melted, about 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and add the salt, paprika, and Rice Krispies.
Toss the Rice Krispies in the pan until they're thoroughly coated. Pour the mixture onto the Silpat-lined baking sheet. Spread the Rice Krispies across the liner with a spatula, pressing down to form a thin layer. Allow to cool slightly. While still warm, cut into any shape you desire. Bunnies are cute! Circles are easy! Squares are modern!
How to cook the perfect paella
S ome dishes are a victim of their own success. The Yorkshire pudding springs to mind – just a little too tasty and conveniently shaped for its own good the Scotch egg suffers from a similar problem. One of the saddest examples is the brave paella. As Catalan author Josep Pla put it, the "abuses" committed against Spain's most famous dish are "excessive – an authentic scandal". It's little things like Keith Floyd's quick-cook rice, as much as any outrageous Thai "twist" or Caribbean pineapple garnish, which offend the sensibilities of Valencians who claim the dish as their birthright.
Jenny Chandler reports in The Real Taste of Spain that shoppers in Valencia's Mercat Central could be persuaded to agree on only thing – fish and shellfish are "absolutely out of the question". Chicken and rabbit, meanwhile, are mandatory – with snails an "optional extra". As Valencian chef Llorenç Millo sensibly observes, "paella has as many recipes as there are villages, and nearly as many as there are cooks". This includes, of course, the seafood version that's more familiar to British visitors, who tend to congregate on the coast where such ingredients are plentiful. Colman Andrews makes a good point in his book Catalan Cuisine when he says: "What is understood in Valencia … is that whether it contains seafood or not, paella is above all a rice dish – and it is ultimately good rice, not good seafood (or whatever) that makes a paella great."
Rice is a tricksy ingredient and, just like risotto, certain rules must be observed to achieve paella nirvana. For a start, one needs a short-grain variety – not long-grain, Ainsley and others – that absorbs liquid easily and won't dry out, even when the outside is toasted to a crunch, as well as a paella pan (or wide pan with a thin base) so the aforementioned liquid cooks off quickly and evenly. Ideally that pan would be set over a wood fire, to give the dish a delicious whiff of smoke, but a gas ring will do. Unlike with a risotto, stirring is absolutely forbidden – Ballymaloe take note – because you're aiming for a tender, but not creamy result. Besides, the brown, crisp layer that forms on the bottom of a well-cooked paella, the socarrat, is a highly prized delicacy.
Much paella lore – that, as Elisabeth Luard reports, "to be truly worthy of the name, the cook is always a man" that the dish must always be prepared and eaten in the open air, "preferably in the shade of an old vine or fig tree", and always at midday, rather than dinnertime – can be happily disregarded as it suits … although come to think of it, that fig tree does sound rather tempting.

The Secret to a Perfect Seafood Paella with Socarrat
First thing is first, make sure you use high-quality ingredients to make a great paella, fresh seafood, Spanish round rice and Spanish saffron. The second thing is to make sure your paella has Socarrat, the beautiful slightly burnt rice at the bottom of the pan. If you achieve socarrat, you have made a perfect paella.
In this Authentic Spanish Seafood Paella Recipe, I will teach you how to achieve this technique. Watch the video below on how to make an Authentic Spanish Seafood Paella Recipe or check out the recipe card below, which you can print.
Equipment I Used to Make this Recipe:
Wood Cutting Board
We made this last night, following the recipe almost exactly. The only change we made was using chicken stock rather than water, assuming it would bring more flavor. The meal was excellent!
In the future, we plan to use sliced chorizo rather than ground, and we plan to try another user's suggestion of making stock out of the shrimp tails. we also under-salted this the flavors didn't pop quite as much right away, but a little extra salt afterwards brought the flavors through. We'd double the batch next time, too, so there would be more leftovers!
Loved the process and the end result. Definitely recommend as way to enjoy some time cooking with your spouse/partner!
We made this tonight and it was excellent. We doubled it and made two paella pans full, and dropped one off for a neighbour. I just hope our teenagers don't clean up all the leftovers tonight so that we can have some for lunch tomorrow.
I have not tried this recipe but and agree that there are many ways of making paella I think some of the suggestions made by Chris Berg would improve the recipe and I agree, no arborio rice.
My puzzlement, however, is that the recipe starts by preheating the oven to 350, but I cannot see where in any step it is put into the oven. What did I miss? Every step has the ingredients cooked on the stove.
Recipe fixes needed to make this better: Use SPANISH chorizo, and slice, keeping them in rings instead of loosely crumbled. For MUCH better flavor, use shrimp or chicken stock INSTEAD of the 1.5 cups of water by simmering the shrimp shells and chicken bones that seem to have been discarded. Why discard the oil in step 2, or saute the chicken then?? Why not cook the shrimp in the same chorizo drippings? Why not cook the (RAW) chicken in that oil instead of cooking it in a different way that has no additional flavor? Why not use chicken thighs or drumsticks instead of boneless cooked pieces that should be sauteed and then cooked with the rice and its liquid to add flavor, as would sauteing finely chopped onions and red pepper strips to add color and flavor. Seems that several steps can be eliminated or changed to add more flavor. No garnish with yellow lemons , green peas, and or red pepper strips. Why no paprika or cayenne pepper ? Just asking.
Process onion, celery, and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped transfer to a small bowl. Add tomatoes to processor and process until smooth set soffritto aside.
Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a 12"–14" paella pan or skillet over medium-high. Add chorizo and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Add shrimp to same skillet, season with salt, and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, about 2 minutes. Transfer to plate with chorizo.
Heat remaining ½ cup oil in same skillet over medium-high. Add reserved soffritto and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 8–10 minutes. Add wine, bring to a boil, and cook until mixture is reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add paprika, sugar, and 2 tsp. salt. Increase heat to high and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick, about 3 minutes. Add stock and saffron and bring to a boil.
Add rice and cook, stirring constantly, until liquid starts to simmer, about 5 minutes. Quit stirring a film will form on the surface (this will trap steam, making a gooey cover over the rice, helping it cook evenly). Reduce heat to low and simmer, moving pan around every few minutes so the entire bottom gets equal time over the hottest part of flame, until liquid evaporates, 12–15 minutes.
Top with olives and reserved chorizo and shrimp. Finely grate lemon zest and squeeze lemon juice over paella, top with sprouts, and season with sea salt. Let paella rest 5 minutes before you dig in serve with lemon wedges.
How would you rate Chorizo and Shrimp Paella?
Spaniard here. Registered just to comment. Horrible recipe. Celery, onion, chorizo and sprouts would never enter a paella not you add vine or sugar. Also missing a lot of fundamental ingredients. If you want to know what goes into a real paella go to wikipaella.org (not affiliated with them).
Maybe not the clearest of recipes in terms of steps and the stock, however we used arborio rice in place of bomb and the timing seemed to work well. Good idea to rotate the pan around the simmer flame, nice and crunchy throughout.
The back burner stock adds amazing depth of flavour don’t skip it! However, the paprika completely overwhelms the dish. Next time I will only use one teaspoon (or less). There’s no point to spending time on delicious complexity only to minimize it with too much of one spice. As for the complaints about the instructions I’ll admit it’s not the easiest recipe to follow — a few tweaks could fix that — but it’s worth the effort.
This recipe is a hit in our house. 2nd time making it for a special occasion - Thanksgiving. We add smoked mussels & spicy lamb sausage, which added another dimension of flavor. Rice took longer to cook, maybe 30 minutes uncovered.
Most poorly written recipe ever. Rice is crunchy, I feel my good, expensive ingredients have been wasted, I will never make another of Camille Becerra's recipes.
So I didn't rate this because I didn't want how I feel about the recipe itself to taint how I feel about the dish. The dish is amazing. The recipe posted here is literally the worst one I've seen. - As someone pointed out, please give an equivalent for the "back burner stock". I had made stock that morning, I didn't feel like making yet another pot of stock. So I used one of the below reviews' guidelines and used 2 cups of stock. But because the recipe doesn't mention to keep the skillet covered, I uncovered it. 2 cups wasn't near enough, I had to add another cup of broth at the 11th hour, once everything was absorbed, so it didn't get the full flavor it should have gotten. - Yeah 12-15 minutes for the rice to cook is wishful thinking. Mine cooked for almost an hour, then I added more stock, and it cooked about 20 minutes more, COVERED. You really should cover your pan, at least halfway. - The timing is ridiculously off throughout the recipe. It's going to take you at least twice as long. Overlook the fact that apparently the author can't write a recipe to save his/her life, and make this, it's awesome. But trust your gut before you trust the instructions, they're all busted.
Haven't made this yet, but I think you need to offer people an option and a quantity to "Back Burner Stock" if someone doesn't want to go through the process of making it. Like 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth would do it.
It takes a whole lot longer to get this rice cooked than 12 - 15 minutes. Try about an hour.
Awesome! I used the same amount of vegetable broth as the amount of rice. I also used medium grain rice, seeing as it was cheaper than the arborio rice, and it still turned out really well.
Learn To Cook Paella At Home
Paella started as a humble countryside meal, cooked by farmers and herders in the fields and mountains surrounding Valencia and Alicante. Now it is world-famous, a symbol of Spanish cuisine so recognizable that it has even become its own emoji. Making paella is an art but it&rsquos not impossible for a home cook &ndash it just takes some care and patience.
What You'll Need
The Pan: The proper cookware for making paella and other arroces is a round flat pan called &ndash you guessed it &ndash a paella. The best paella pans are steel stainless for minimal care, carbon steel for something more traditional &ndash which ensures that heat is evenly distributed. Pans can range in size from 10 inches, which will serve two people, to more than a meter, for serving the masses. Check out paella pans here.
The Rice: One of the keys to great paella is using the proper rice &ndash not just anything will do. Two Spanish varieties &ndash bomba and calasparra &ndash are favored for their unique ability to expand to 2-3 times their size, absorbing flavorful liquid as they grow, without getting soft or mushy. Buy our favorite Calasparra rice here.
The Ingredients: Get creative &ndash start with meat if you want, layer in evenly-cut vegetables, and you can even add a healthy amount of sofrito for extra depth. Garlic, saffron, rosemary, pimentón, bay leaves &ndash all will help add flavor to the rice, if used in balance.
The Liquid: Water is oftentimes the best for making a good paella, if you've built up enough flavor with your ingredients. If you happen to have a good homemade vegetable or meat stock on hand, use it &ndash you&rsquoll get a deeper flavor in the rice, but be sure to balance out adding salt. This is our favorite broth for making paella.
The Heat: Traditionally, paella is cooked over a wood fire outdoors &ndash oftentimes starting with logs of wood and ending with a burst of high heat from dried vine clippings. This gives the paella a wonderful wood smoky aroma which complements the addition of pimentón, and the final kick of high heat helps ensure a crispy socarrat. In the absence of an outdoor cooking space, gas or electric heat will do &ndash just make sure it&rsquos even under the pan.
The Timing: Once the rice is in the pan, it&rsquos time to set a clock and wait. This is both the easiest and most challenging moment of the process: patience is key. Every rice is different, based on its variety and its age, and oftentimes the best way to tell how long it should be cooked is to read the instructions on the bag.
Get that soccarat. Near the end of cooking, with just a few minutes remaining, crank the heat up &ndash that&rsquos how you&rsquoll get the delicious crunchy soccarat at the bottom of the rice.
Get Creative In The Kitchen
There is a time and a place for the traditional Valencian paella, made with rabbit, chicken, two kinds of beans, rosemary, and saffron. And then there&rsquos a time and place for everything else &ndash there are unlimited ways to construct an arroz, none of which are wrong. Get creative &ndash start with meat if you want, layer in evenly-cut vegetables, and you can even add a healthy amount of sofrito for extra depth. Garlic, saffron, rosemary, pimettón, bay leaves &ndash all will help add flavor to the rice, if used in balance. Here are two of our favorite recipes.
For the Salmorra:
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, preferably José Andrés Extra Virgin Olive Oil
12 cloves garlic, peeled
3 ñora chile peppers (or any other dried sweet chile pepper), seeded
One 16-ounces can plum tomatoes, drained
1 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika
Heat the oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until soft, about 2 minutes.
Add the chile peppers and toast, stirring, for about 3 minutes, then add the tomatoes and sugar.
Cook until the liquid evaporates and the mixture is a dark red-brown color, about 15 minutes. Stir in the paprika.
Transfer the mixture to a blender and purée. Pour into a bowl, and season with salt, to taste.
Notes: Salmorra may be kept in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap, for up to 10 days. Drizzle the top with olive oil to keep sauce from drying out.
For the rice:
Extra virgin olive oil, preferably José Andrés Extra Virgin Olive Oil
8 large whole shrimp, peeled with heads and tails intact, deveined
4 ounces monkfish, cut into ½-inch cubes
2 ½ ounces fresh tuna, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 ounces fresh squid, cleaned and cut into ¼-inch rings
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
¼ cup Salmorra
1 cup Spanish bomba rice
Pinch of saffron
3 cups hot, high-quality seafood stock
Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a 13-inch paella pan over high heat.
Add the shrimp and sear for about 1 minute on each side. Transfer shrimp to a plate. Pour 2 more tablespoons of the olive oil into the paella pan, add the monkfish, tuna and squid and sauté for 2 minutes.
Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the salmorra and rice and cook for 1 minute more, stirring to coat the rice with the sauce. Set a timer for 5 minutes, increase the heat to high and add the hot stock.
Bring to a boil, add the saffron and season with salt. Stir the rice during the first 5 minutes while boiling, then lower the heat and simmer for an additional 11 minutes. Do not stir the rice again as it may cause it to cook unevenly. After about 8 minutes, lay the reserved shrimp on top of the paella to finish cooking for last few minutes. The paella is finished when the rice has absorbed all of the liquid.
Remove the paella from the heat, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let the paella rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with spoonful&rsquos of aioli (garlic mayonnaise) and a green salad, if you like.
¼ cup Spanish extra virgin olive oil
2 yellow squash, cut in ½&rdquo cubes
1 medium eggplant, cut in ½&rdquo cubes
1 cauliflower, broken into florets
¼ pound wild mushrooms, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tomatoes, diced
¼ cup Sofrito
1 cup dry white wine
Pinch of saffron, crushed
3 cups vegetable broth, like Aneto
1 cup Spanish bomba or calasparra rice
¼ cup fresh or frozen green peas
Sea salt, to taste
Allioli, for serving
In a 13-inch paella pan, heat the extra virgin olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the squash to the pan and brown it on all sides. Add the squash and cauliflower and cook for another 2-3 minutes, then add the mushrooms and garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Stir in the diced tomatoes and the sofrito and cook for a minute, then add the white wine and reduce everything by half.
Add the crushed saffron to the pan and then the broth. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil, then let it boil for 2-3 minutes. Add the rice and peas and stir until everything is combined, then add salt to taste. Check the box or bag the rice came in &ndash you&rsquoll want to cook the rice as long as is recommended (timing can vary by rice type &ndash always keep the bag!) You want the rice to be slightly al dente, with a nice firm center. Set a timer, and then don&rsquot stir as the rice is cooking. When you have 2 minutes left, increase the heat to high to get the crunchy soccarat at the bottom of the pan. When the rice is done, remove the pan from the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes before serving.
Serve with allioli and share the soccarat with everyone &ndash no matter how much you want to save it exclusively for the chef (yourself).

Perfect Your Paella with This 7-Step Recipe
There are many versions of the famous rice dish called Paella. From the original Valencian version that includes rabbit and snails to vegetarian and seafood Paella (Paella de Marco) to Paella mixtape's chicken, meat and shellfish, paella comes in several varieties. As you learn how to make Paella, it's important to know how many people you want to serve — and what you'll need to make the perfect meal.
Paella pans, sometimes called paelleras are made especially for the job. They are round, open, metal pans, which are approximately 2 to 2.5 inches deep (5 to 6 centimeters). These pans spread the heat and withstand cooking over hot coals. Paella pans can be made of carbon steel, stainless steel or enamel and have two handles. The material, shape and shallow depth of the pans are what make them perfect for cooking rice, which is the focus of the Paella.
Paella pans are readily available in sizes from a 9-inch pan that makes one to two servings and costs about $10, all the way to a 45-inch pan that makes 120 servings and costs upwards of $400. Carbon steel Paella pans in three typical sizes used by home cooks are shown in the photo above.
