Recipe

At Restaurante Morayma, Esteban García Mingorance, a young chef, prepares traditional Andalucían food, like these fideos. Fideos are short pieces of thin pasta that are traditionally cooked like a rice pilaf—browned in oil, then cooked in only enough liquid to make them tender. You can use any type of seafood you like—whatever clams look best, whichever shrimp look freshest. The end result is a hearty, flavorful dish.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound fideos (or substitute angel hair pasta broken into 1-inch pieces)
  • 1 large onion, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon hot pimentón (Spanish smoked paprika)
  • One 28-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 6 cups fish or seafood stock
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 bay leaf
  • A large pinch of saffron threads
  • 1 pound mussels, scrubbed
  • 1 pound medium shrimp in the shell
  • 1 pound clams, scrubbed

Directions

Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Add the fideos and cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes, or until well browned. Using a skimmer, transfer the fideos to a bowl. Add the onion, garlic, and pimentón to the pot and cook until the onion is beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, breaking them up with your hands as you do so, and their juice, raise the heat to high, and cook, stirring frequently, until the tomatoes have broken down and the sauce has thickened, 15 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the stock, wine, bay leaf, and saffron in another large, heavy pot and bring to a boil. Add the seafood, cover, and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, or until all the clams and mussels have opened and the shrimp are opaque. Transfer the seafood to a large bowl and add the shellfish cooking liquid and fideos to the tomato sauce. Add the fideos and cook, stirring frequently, until the fideos have absorbed a lot of the liquid and are soft, 10 to 15 minutes. Add the shellfish, simmer gently just to heat through, and serve.
