  •   1 lb Hot Italian Sausage, casing removed
  •   1 lb Mixed Seafood (shrimp, mussels, squid)

  1. Heat a large-sized paella pan or skillet over moderate heat. Add the sausage and cook; split it with a spoon until it gets browned and fully cooked. Please take out the sausage from the pan and keep it aside.
  2. Place the onion and garlic in the same pan and cook until soft.
  3. Stir the rice into the pan, coating each grain with the oil. Prepare for 2-3 minutes until the rice becomes translucent.

  5. Add the mixed seafood to the pan, pushing it into the rice. Cook for another 10 minutes or until the seafood is prepared and the rice is tender.
  6. Return the cooked sausage to the pan and stir to combine. Season with salt and Pepper.
  7. Garnish the paella with fresh parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
