Not entirely traditional, but not entirely untraditional, either. It takes about 75-90 minutes from first heating the pan to eating. Serves 6-8.



  1. Put oil or bacon fat in a large sauté pan and heat
  2. Sauté chorizo, then set aside in a bowl
  3. Sauté chicken or turkey with oregano and paprika, then set aside
  4. Sauté ham, then set aside
  5. Sauté onions, celery, parsley and tomatoes (sofrito), then set aside
  6. Briefly sauté rice
  7. Add chicken stock to rice and bring to a boil
  8. Add meats, sofrito, and saffron, stir and bring back to a boil
  9. Reduce to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes
  10. Stir mix, simmer for 10 more minutes
  11. Add scallops and stir, simmer for another 10-15 minutes until all liquid is absorbed
  12. Stir to fluff, let cool a bit (5 minutes), and serve.

There is probably enough salt in the chorizo, chicken stock, and ham that you won’t need to add any to the dish. A little black pepper won’t be wrong. Serve with salad or fruit on the side to make a lighter meal.
