Grilled Paella

Directions

  1. Scrub live mussels under cold running water. Using your fingers, pull out the beards from the mussels that are visible between the shells. In a large pot combine 4 quarts cold water and 1/3 cup of the coarse salt. Add mussels; soak for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse, discarding water. Repeat twice more. Set mussels aside.
  2. Season chicken thighs with salt and black pepper. For a charcoal grill, place a 16-inch paella pan* on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals; add oil to pan, swirling to coat evenly. Place chicken, skin sides down, in pan. Cook about 10 minutes or until brown, turning once. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Place pan on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.) Remove chicken from pan; set aside.
  3. Add chorizo, bacon, and pork to pan; cook and stir about 5 minutes or until brown on all sides. Add sweet pepper, onion, and garlic; cook and stir about 5 minutes or until vegetables begin to soften. Add rice; cook and stir until grains of rice are light brown. Return chicken to pan. Add broth, tomatoes, saffron, paprika, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the 1/4 teaspoon black pepper to pan. Bring to boiling; cover grill. Cook, without stirring, for 15 to 20 minutes or until rice is plump but still slightly firm. Stir in mussels, shrimp, peas, parsley, lemon peel, and thyme. Cover and cook for 5 to 7 minutes more or until shrimp is opaque, mussels are open, and chicken is no longer pink (180 degrees F). Discard any unopened mussels. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

If you don't have a paella pan, use a roasting pan that you don't mind getting messy or a double layer of 13x9-inch disposable foil pans. If using foil pans, the time to bring rice mixture to boiling will be increased (to about 20 minutes) and the covered cooking time will increase to about 30 minutes plus 10 more minutes after shrimp is added.

This one is so good! We made this at the cabin on the grill and it was worth the work (the most work involved was organizing all the ingredients beforehand). We used a double thickness of foil 13x9 inch pans instead of the paella pan and it worked great.
