Paella Sotanghon

Paella Sotanghon

If you are looking for a different version of paella, then I think this dish will arouse your curiosity. Instead of using rice as the main ingredient of cooking paella, this recipe I have here uses vermicelli or commonly called sotanghon. The seafoods used are clams, mussels and prawns and of course chicken meat is also included.

To cook paella sotanghon; Soak vermicelli or sotanghon in water for 5 minutes, drain and set aside. Bring clams and mussels to a boil, reserve the stock. In a large pan, saute garlic and onions. Add the seafood and simmer for about 3 minutes. Then add the tomato paste and sweet paprika. Pour in the reserved stock and sotanghon and let  it boil until cooked. Add the remaining ingredients and transfer in a Paellanera. Then cook in oven for about 10 minutes.
