A summer dish favorite in Spain.
Also, absolute favorites - both for the stunning presentation and the delicious, coastal flavor.
Purée chile, parsley, and 6 Tbsp. oil in a food processor until smooth; season chile-parsley oil with salt and set aside.
Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a 13″ paella pan or a 12″ cast-iron skillet over medium-high. Cook pancetta, stirring occasionally, until browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. Add yellow onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 8–10 minutes. Add garlic and RawSpiceBar’s Paella Spices and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Carefully add Sherry, bring to a simmer, and cook, stirring constantly, until pan is almost dry, about 3 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is coated and starting to turn translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in broth, orange zest, and RawSpiceBar’s Paella Spices; season with salt. Bring broth to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until rice is nearly tender, 12–15 minutes.
Pluck out zest. Nestle clams into rice in center of pan and cook until clams begin to open, 12–15 minutes. Cover pan with foil and simmer until rice is al dente and clams open (discard any that don’t), 8–10 minutes. Remove from heat (keep covered) and let rice steam 10 minutes.
While paella cooks, heat a grill pan over medium-high. Separately, toss spring onions, haricots verts, and prawns with 1 Tbsp. oil each in bowls; season with salt and pepper. Grill spring onions, turning occasionally, until greens are charred and bulbs are tender, about 5 minutes. Next, grill haricots verts, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and tender, about 2 minutes, then grill prawns until cooked through and shells are charred, about 3 minutes per side. Finally, grill lemons until charred, about 1 minute per side.
Arrange spring onions, haricots verts, and prawns over paella. Drizzle dish with reserved chile-parsley oil and squeeze some juice from grilled lemons over. Place remaining wedges on top of paella and serve.
