Tropical Shrimp Paella




  1. Slice the linguica or smoked sausage or chorizo into 1/4-inch rounds, then quarter the sausage.
  2. Marinate the prawns in olive oil which has been infused with saffron. Season with kosher salt and crushed red pepper. In addition, other seafood may be added such as clams and mussels.
  3. Cook the onion in half the olive oil until translucent over medium-high heat. Add the thyme, turmeric, salt and rice. Stir well. Add the stock, stir once and set on low heat for about 20 minutes, or until just al dente.
  4. In large sauce pan, warm the garlic in the remaining olive oil and add the diced red pepper. Add the fruit, sausage and prawns and sauté for one minute.
  5. Add the rum and cook for another minute to burn off the alcohol.
  6. Add the cooked rice. Toss all together carefully until thoroughly incorporated. Moisten with a little more stock if necessary.
  7. Mound the paella in a bowl or on a plate. Garnish the paella with two spears of pineapple, some sliced chives and sliced star fruit if desired.
