Twenty Minute Seafood Paella. Minus the Rice.

Love paella, but wanted something a little lighter. I left the rice out and added a few baby potatoes.  The result was a just right, light combination of seafood and veggies.

  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1/2 leek, thinly sliced
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 T Italian Parsley, chopped
  • 1 C frozen okra, cut
  • 5 or 6 baby potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • sea salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 3/4 pound Seafood: bay scallops, peeled & deveined shrimp, mussels

Saute leek slices in olive oil for 5 minutes. Add garlic, tomato, parsley, okra, & potatoes. Salt & pepper to taste.  Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes.  Add seafood of your choice. Simmer until seafood is cooked through. Enjoy with some crusty bread!
