1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 head cauliflower
1 cup green peas
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon saffron threads (optional)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Lemon wedges for serving
Rinse the cauliflower and cut it into florets. Place the florets in a food processor and pulse until they resemble rice grains. Set aside.
In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic, sautéing until the onion becomes translucent.
Stir in the paprika, turmeric, and saffron (if using), then add the cauliflower "rice" and peas to the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender.
Push the vegetables to the side of the pan to create space for the shrimp. Add the shrimp and cook until pink and opaque, about 2-3 minutes per side.
Mix everything together and season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with chopped parsley.
Serve your paella hot, with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the top.
