Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 1 Prep: 15 min Cook: 25 min

Ingredients

Frozen prawns with heads 8-10
Frozen prawns 6-8
Chicken stock cube 1/2
Hot water 400ml
Pancetta 30g
Onion 1/4
Yellow pepper 1/2
Broccoli 4 florets
Carrot 1/3
Paprika powder 2 tsp
Turmeric 2 tsp
Short grain rice 120g

Method

1
Put 2 tsp vegetable oil in a large frying pan and fry the prawns with heads for 4-5 minutes.
2
When you get a nice smell from the prawns, press the heads down firmly with tongs to extract the juice. Add the chicken stock 300ml.
3
Reduce Step 2 a little, then turn off the heat. Blend to make a prawn juice.
4
In the same frying pan, add some oil, pancetta and all the vegetables.
5
When the pancetta fat melts, add the unwashed rice, paprika powder and turmeric and stir together for 1 minute.
6
Add the prawn juice from Step 3 and 100ml hot water and simmer on low heat without a lid.
7
Keep checking for the rice to cook, add a bit of water as necessary.
8
Just before it's cooked, add the other prawns and cook for 3 minutes, it's now ready to serve with lemon on the side.

Tips & Note

●The more prawns with heads you use, the deeper the flavour.
●You can use whichever vegetables you like, but colourful peppers really make this dish look attractive.
●This is not really a paella because there is no saffron, so I called it paella risotto but it tastes almost like a paella!
