Method:

  1. Heat the oil in a medium to large paella pan or outdoor safe heavy-based fry pan to a medium heat.
  2. Cook off the onion and garlic until translucent
  3. Add celery and capsicum and gently sauté until softened.
  4. Add rice and stir-fry for 2-3minutes until rice is thoroughly coated in oil and ingredients and starting to look translucent.
  5. Add in preserved lemon, lemon zest and saffron and stirr.
  6. Add stock stir to evenly distribute and bring to the boil. No more stirring should be necessary, reduce to a medium heat. When the rice begins to swell and a rolling simmer is consistent or after 12-15minutes, Place the butter cubes evenly all over the paella and allow it to sink in without stirring.
  7. Then scatter pippis across the surface of the paella.
  8. Allow further cooking for five minutes before slightly burying the pippis in the rice.
  9. Scatter fish (or larger pieces of scallops so they can cook for longer) over the surface of the paella, cook for five minutes.
  10. Scatter scallops and chilli all over the surface of the paella and drizzle lobster oil and lemon juice all over, cook for approximately another five minutes.
  11. As soon as seafood is just cooked through, sprinkle parsley all over the surface, place lemon wedges and serve in the centre of your diners.

Our friends at Wine Selectors recommend pairing this dish with a Mitolo, Vermentino & Fiano.
