Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 25mins

  • 50ml olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 20g Spicy Sausage - nduja (can use sobrasada or chorizo)
  • 3 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 1 tin anchovies
  • 250g paella rice

  1. Place the olive oil and garlic in a heavy based pot, cook over a medium heat until it starts to brown.
  2. Add the sliced nduja and allow to break down, cook for 1min. Next add the smoked paprika, and anchovies and cook till it breaks down.
  3. Add the rice and coat in the flavoured oil. Keep over a medium heat for 1min, then add the wine. Once this disappears add the stock and saffron.
