  • Cast Iron Skillet


  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onions
  • 3-4 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 links chicken sausage Can use any type of sausage/chorizo. I like Bilinski's sausage.
  • ~20-25 pieces shrimp Tails off
  • 1 package Right Rice Original Vegetable Rice Can use another rice, but I have not tested the exact amount.
  • 1 1/2 diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp saffron
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 1/3 cups bone broth For cooking the rice. I like Bonafide Provisions.
  • 2 tbsp bone broth Save this for the final steps
  • juice of half of a lemon
  • parsley for garnish Optional


  • Cook the Right Rice according to the package. Instead of using water, cook in the chicken broth! Set the cooked rice aside.
  • Heat the oil, onions, and garlic in your cast iron skillet and saute until translucent and fragrant.
  • Add the sausage in and cook for about a minute. Be sure to double check that your sausage is pre-cooked. If it is not, cook the sausage until it is about half way through cooking.
  • Add the shrimp in and cook for about a couple minutes. They will not be fully cooked, but you do not want your shrimp to overcook and become rubbery throughout the rest of the cooking process.
  • Add in the paprika and the salt and stir everything together. Turn the heat down to medium, medium-low.
  • Add in the rice and the diced tomatoes and mix everything together.
  • Add the remaining 2 tbsp of bone broth, the saffron, and the lemon juice. Let everything simmer for a few minutes.
  • Add in the frozen peas and let everything simmer for a few more minutes. The rice will absorb the bone broth. Make sure your proteins are fully cooked at this point!
  • You can garnish the paella with parsley, a little more salt and enjoy!
