Step 1
Grab one Cod Fillets (14 oz) , cut it into 1-inch thick slices, then cut each slice into 3 pieces. Add the pieces of cod to a bowl and season with Sea Salt (1 pinch) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch) .
Step 2
Separate the white and green part of the Scallions (1 stalk) . Finely dice the white part.
Step 3
Thinly slice the green part.
Step 4
Mince the Garlic (3 cloves) .
Step 5
Heat a paella pan over medium-high heat and add Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1/4 cup) . Heat for 2 minutes. Season the oil with Sea Salt (1 pinch) and add the white part of the scallion and garlic. Mix with the oil and cook for 2 minutes, then add the green part of the scallion.
Step 6
After 1 minute, add Spanish Smoked Sweet Paprika (1/2 tsp) and mix it all together, then add Canned Tomato Purée (1/2 cup) and season with Sea Salt (2 pinches) . Mix it all together until well combined.
Step 7
After 1 minute, add Fish Broth (2 1/4 cups) , pinch in Saffron Threads (1/2 tsp) , season again with a little Sea Salt (1 pinch) and give it a gentle mix.
Step 8
Once the broth comes to a boil, add the pieces of cod. Mix, then add Spanish Rice (1 cup) . Stir the rice around so it's evenly distributed. After this point, don't mix the rice again, but you can give the pan a quick shake here and there. Let it cook for 10 minutes.
Step 9
Lower the fire to a low-medium heat and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Once there is very little broth left, turn the burner to high heat for 2 minutes to achieve the socarrat (the crunchy bottom part of the rice), then remove the pan from the heat and cover with a dishcloth.
Step 10
After letting the paella rest for 5 minutes, uncover it and garnish with Lemons (to taste) , enjoy!
