Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • Water
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cups Spanish or arborio rice, soaked in water for 15 minutes then drained
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 large pinches of saffron threads soaked in ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 large tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 6 oz. French green beans
  • 1 lb. prawns, large shrimp or your choice of seafood, peeled and deveined (mussels, clams and other shellfish can also be used)
  • 4 small lobster tails
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions:

In a large pot, boil 3 cups of water. Add the lobster tails and let boil briefly, 1-2 minutes, until pink. Turn off heat. Remove the lobster tails. Do not discard the lobster cooking water. When lobster has cooled, remove the shell and cut meat into large chunks.

In a large, deep pan, warm the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion. Sauté onion for 2 minutes, then add rice and cook for 3 additional minutes, stirring regularly. Add the chopped garlic and the lobster cooking water. Stir in the saffron along with its soaking liquid, paprika, cayenne pepper, pepper flakes, and salt. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and green beans. Bring it all to a boil and let the liquid reduce slightly, then cover and cook on low heat for 20 minutes.

Uncover and spread the shrimp or shellfish over the rice, gently pushing it into the rice. Add a small amount water if rice seems dry, in order to steam. At this point, you can taste the rice and add more salt to taste, if needed. Cover and cook another 10-15 minutes until the shrimp turns pink. Finally, add the cooked lobster chunks. When the lobster is warmed through, turn heat off. Garnish with parsley.

Serve paella hot, alongside Harney Lane’s Tempranillo or Albariño. A relaxing patio and Spanish tapas are optional, but strongly recommended!

We have only a few cases of 2014 Albariño left- it has aged beautifully in the bottle and is simply delicious right now. Order yours today!

SKIRT STEAK TACOS WITH HOMEMADE MOLE SAUCE

Ingredients

skirt steak
small corn or flour tortillas
8 dried ancho chiles or a mixture of ancho and pasilla
4 cloves garlic
1 large tomato, cored and halved
2 slices bread, toasted and cubed
1 small onion, diced
1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves (or 1 teaspoon dried)
1 pinch of cloves
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 heaping tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions

Marinade skirt steak for at least ½ an hour prior to cooking in your choice of marinade, season with salt and pepper.

Remove the stems, seeds and ribs from the chile peppers. Cover them with boiling water and weight them so they stay underwater. Leave to soak for 30 minutes.

In a hot, dry skillet, cook the garlic cloves and tomato for about 5 minutes, turning a couple of times.

Drain the chiles, reserving the soaking water. In a blender, combine the chiles with the garlic, tomato, bread, onion, oregano, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper, sugar, salt and cocoa power, orange juice and 1/2 cup of the chile soaking water. Purée very thoroughly, adding more liquid as necessary until you have about 3 1/2 cups.

Heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan over a medium flame. Pour in the mole, and simmer for about 30 minutes, lightly covered. The sauce should darken and become more concentrated.

While mole simmers, grill or pan sear skirt steak to desired doneness and slice thinly. Also prep any desired taco toppings; we recommend fresh avocado and sautéed mushrooms with onions.

Taste and adjust the seasonings according to your desired spice, chocolate, chili, salt and acid levels. Aim for a complex, balanced flavor. Also add a little more liquid or simmer a bit longer to get a thicker texture.

Place skirt steak in warm tacos, top with a heaping spoonful of mole sauce and toppings and enjoy!
