Spanish Lemon Paella

Serves 4

100g or 1 stick kabana, sliced
1 1/2 cups arborio rice
1.2l of liquid (stock or water)
1 1/4 tablespoons McCormick Lemon & Pepper seasoning
2 tsp turmeric
1 cup roast chicken, sliced
1 cup mixed seafood or canned prawns or crab
2 medium ripe tomatoes, diced
4 spring onions/scallions

Fry the kabana and rice in a large non stick pan for 3 minutes. Add the liquid, one cup at a time, stirring so that the rice absorbs it all. Just prior to adding the last cup of liquid, add the seasonings, roast chicken and seafood. Cook for a further 2 minutes, to absorb all the liquid. Stir through the remaining ingredients, then remove from the heat. Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice and a handful of fresh parsley if desired.

A favourite here. This time we cut down the spice and added the paella spice from Herbies, also I knew I had forgotten something at the shop, which was the kabana or kabanos? in other countries. It was nice with the change of spice and no kabana. It is originally an Australia McCormick recipe (obviously McCormick is not an Australian company, but I am guessing it is a recipe specifically for Australia). Maybe it is an Australian company. But if you look carefully at the ingredients list for mixed spice, McCormicks is different to the other brands. Also, the minis are the same as the American imported Pumpkin Pie Spice that you get from USAFoods, only a different colour. Anyway, the original recipe is on the site here. The kabana has been changed to chorizo since we found the recipe in a magazine years ago.

I have batteries in both the cameras now, so maybe I'll be able to take a picture or two?
