  • 3 cups chorizo, sliced into 1-inch rings
  • 1 cup shrimps, fresh or frozen, thawed if using frozen, tail-on, and deveined
  • 1 cup clams, or mussels, fresh or frozen, thawed if using frozen and debearded
  • 1 cup scallops, fresh or frozen, thawed if using frozen
  • cups chicken broth, or seafood broth
  • cup long grain rice
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 3 oz yellow onions, chopped
  • 4 oz bell peppers of your choice, chopped
  • 2 cups tomatoes, with juice, canned diced or crushed
  • 1 cup green peas, frozen and thawed
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • tsp garlic salt
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • salt and ground black pepper, to taste

To Serve:

  • 2 lemon wedges, per serving
  • 1 tbsp aioli, per serving if using
  • ¼ tsp parsley, chopped, per serving


  1. In a wide skillet, heat up olive oil. Add the sausage and saute until caramelized, roughly 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside.

  2. Using the same skillet with oil, sear the scallops and shrimps separately until golden on both sides, roughly 2 to 3 minutes per side. Set aside.

  3. Still using the same skillet with oil, add the mussels or clams and saute briefly, just until they open up if using fresh, roughly 3 to 5 minutes.

  4. Deglaze with white wine and reduce briefly, then set aside this together with the other seafood.

  5. Add the rice, onion, bell pepper, tomatoes, broth, and all the spices to the slow-cooker. Mix to combine.

  6. Cover and cook on high for 3½ hours.

  7. Add the peas to the slow cooker and cook for an additional 30 minutes.

  8. Add your seafood and chorizo into your crockpot during the last 15 minutes of cooking. Stir to combine.

  9. Once your paella is cooked, season to taste with salt and pepper. Adjust accordingly.

  10. Portion your paella and drizzle with aioli if preferred. Garnish with parsley and serve with a lemon wedge.
