Spanish Seafood Pasta “Fideua”

Over the summer I told the kids I would cook from a different Country or Region of the world everyday! Today was Spain. This is my take on a delicious dish called “Fideua” or Seafood Pasta.  It came out delicious ! The kids all loved it too ! 

1 onion, minced 
2 carrots, peeled and cubed tiny 
12 garlic cloves (yes 12), minced 
4 tablespoons Kerrygold Butter 
4 tablespoons olive or avocado oil 
1 (12oz) jar marinated artichoke hearts, chopped 
1 pound shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed (I dried mine and tossed in some olive oil, salt and pepper and seared them on indoor grill for extra flavor and color) 
2 cans of clams or 3 pounds fresh clams 
1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped 
1/2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh oregano, finely chopped 
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 12 oz can of fire roasted tomatoes, diced 
1 teaspoon smoked paprika 
1/8 teaspoon Real Saffron
1 pound gluten free pasta of your choice 

1 cup Parmesan Cheese 

  • In a large skillet heat the olive oil and butter. 
  • Start water for pasta. Once it boils add 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • Add the onion, garlic and carrot. 
  • Cook on low until soft, about 30 minutes. 
  • Add the artichokes and tomato
  • If you are going to cook your shrimp like I did you can do it now. 
  • Add your pasta to the salted boiling water. 
  • While your pasta is cooking add the clams and shrimp to you skillet. Cook for 2 minutes on high. 
  • Add the saffron and paprika. 
  • Adjust salt. 
  • In a large bowl combine the parsley, basil, oregano, thyme, capers, sauce and cheese. 
  • Toss and serve immediately !
