  • powdered saffron
  • cube broth (crustaceans or poultry)

Step 1: cooking the shrimp

In a large skillet, heat olive oil before placing the shrimp and cooking them on each side. Once the shrimps are golden brown, take them out of the pan and set aside to keep the juice.

Step 2: the filling

Cut the pepper in half and remove the seeds and the white part, then cut into strips and small cubes. Fry everything in olive oil in the pan aside, with the chopped garlic first, then the cubed jalapeno pepper and the piquillo peppers. Cut the chicken into small dice and sauté with the rest. Simmer before adding the still dry rice directly, then mix well. Salt the rice and add the spices. Finally pour the broth generously, like a risotto, until everything is well covered. Then let cook without stirring.

Step 3: the finishes
