Arroz amarillo – Yellow Rice

A super simple recipe to prepare the perfect yellow rice to accompany any family dish.


500g Rice 
3 Tomatoes
100g Onion
1 Red pepper
1 Green pepper
100g Peas
Half a garlic clove
Fish stock
Saffron to taste


Heat 2 or 3 tablespoons of oil in a pan, lightly brown the chopped onion, about 5 minutes. Add the ripe tomatoes, peeled and cut into pieces, sauté for a few minutes, sieve the cooked mixture and reserve. Heat 3 or 4 tablespoons of oil, chop the pepper finely and fry lightly over low heat, add the reserved onion and tomato, stir, add the rice and sauté for 2 minutes, cover with the hot fish stock at a ratio of 2:1 of stock for each measure of rice. Distribute the ingredients evenly in the paella pan, season with salt and cook over medium heat. Crush half a clove of garlic and some parsley leaves and add this to the paella halfway through cooking, along with the cooked peas, season with saffron to taste. Once the stock is absorbed into the rice, let it rest off the heat for a few minutes.
