    threeovens's Note:

    Paella is a perfect food for taking on a picnic since it can be enjoyed at room temperature and feeds a crowd. This version has only seafood, no chicken, and no sausages.

    Saffron Aioli



    1. 1
      Use a mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, and combine egg yolks, garlic, saffron, and a pinch of salt; whisk at high speed, while adding oil, drop by drop (this is important because otherwise mixture will not thicken properly).
    2. 2
      As the aioli begins to thicken you can increase the oil to a thin stream; adjust seasonings with a squeeze of lemon juice and/or more salt, if needed.
    3. 3
      In a paella pan with lid or large deep-sided skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat; add onion and saute until softened and golden, about 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, coarsely grate the tomatoes, cut side, until only the skins remain and discard skins; you should have about 2 cups of tomatoes.
    5. 5
      Stir the tomatoes, peppers, and bay leaves into the onions; season with paprika.
    6. 6
      Simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid evaporates, about 15 minutes.
    7. 7
      Add the stock, bring to a boil, then stir in the rice; reduce heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes, stirring to prevent the rice from sticking.
    8. 8
      Stir in the peas, squid, mussels or clams, and shrimp; turn heat to low and simmer until nearly all the liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      Cover with lid, remove from heat, and let rest 5 to 10 minutes; sprinkle with parsley and let cool.
    10. 10
      Serve with saffron aioli and lemon wedges.
