Course Dinner


  • 1 lb Large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 lb ground chorizo
  • 2 raw chicken breasts cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup Tomato Paste
  • 1 can roasted tomatoes chopped
  • 1 pinch saffron
  • 1 head Cauliflower Rice You can buy the package already riced:)
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 box Chicken Stock
  • 1 drizzle cooking oil I use avacado
  • 2 heads Garlic minced
  • 1 whole Onion chopped
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Sweet Paprika
  • 1 whole red pepper chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper chopped


  • Add chorizo to the pan and cook.
  • Once choirzo is cooked, remove from pan. Add chicken in the grease from the chorizo to cook.
  • Remove chicken once cooked. Add onion and pepper to the pan and saute until slightly soft. You might have to add a bit more oil to saute the veggies in.
  • Add garlic and spices to pan.
  • Add riced cauliflower and cook until just slightly tender. You don't want mushy paella.
  • Add chicken and chorizo back to the pan.
  • Add tomato paste, tomatoes and some of the chicken stock. You don't want it to be too runny so you will have to eyeball the amount of stock you add.
  • Place shrimp into the liquid and cook with the lid on until the shrimp is pink. You want to arrange the shrimp in a pretty pattern and push it down into the liquid.
  • Once the Paella is cooked it is time to sprinkle with parsley and drizzle the juice from the lemon over the top.
  • Enjoy!
