Method

  1. Crumble the saffron into a small bowl. Pour the 2 Tbsp. boiling water over it. Let saffron steep in the water until needed below. 
  2. Place the oil in a very large (at least 12” wide) skillet or paella pan set over medium heat. Add onion and green pepper and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in the tomatoes, garlic and paprika and cook 3 to 4 minutes more. Mix in the rice and cook 2 minutes more. 
  3. Add the stock, steeped saffron and its liquid, salt and pepper and bring the mixture to a simmer. Simmer the rice for 15 minutes, or until firm/tender. Top the rice (which should be slightly wet; add a little water if isn’t) with the crab pieces and olives. Cover and cook 6 to 8 minutes, or until the crab is heated through and the rice is tender. 
  4. Top paella with the peas and cook 1 minute more. Sprinkle with parsley, garnish with lemon wedges, and serve. 

Note: Saffron is sold in our bottled herb and spice aisle. You'll find Arborio rice alongside the other types of rice we sell. Cooked Dungeness crab is available in our Seafood Department. Our staff will be happy to clean them for you. If you want to learn how clean the crab yourself, click here How to Clean a Cooked Dungeness Crab.

Serving Suggestions

Serve the paella with a bottle of good BC white wine, such as sauvignon blanc or viognier, and your favourite Brio bread, which is baked fresh daily in our bakery department.
