Method

  1. Sprinkle the white fish all over with the sea salt and let sit for 10 minutes. In a medium saucepan gently warm the fish stock, water and saffron to just under a simmer; cover the pan.
  2. Heat the olive oil in the paella pan over medium heat using your largest burner; quickly sauté the white fish and remove.
  3. Soften the onions and garlic; add the tomatoes, and cook for a few minutes to reduce and thicken; stir in the paprika and black pepper; stir in the squid, coating well.
  4. Add the warmed stock and bring to the boil; stir in the rice, coating well - then do not stir the rice again.
  5. Bring the pan to a gently rolling boil and cook for about 5 minutes; add the white fish - pressing gently into the rice and stock; taste for salt (remembering that the stock will continue to concentrate).
  6. Continue to boil until the rice is no longer soupy then reduce the heat to low; arrange the mussels (hinge side down), prawns and pepper strips over the rice, pressing in gently. Continue to cook until the liquid is absorbed, 10-15 minutes.
  7. Removed from heat, cover with a tea towel, and leave to rest for 5 minutes. Garnish with lemon wedges and take to the table.
