You can use live mussels or the precooked frozen mussels for this recipe, however the frozen precooked ones worked best for me.

For picture purposes I left the tails on the shrimp, but feel free to take them off when prepping. 

Quick Tip:

Rinsing the rice helps to remove the extra starch from the rice, which can lead to clumpy grains. But don’t rinse rice if you’re making risotto or rice pudding.

Easy Oven Roasted Mussels and Shrimp Paella made in a cast iron skillet and baked to perfection with seafood and veggies!






    1. Adjust an oven rack to the center of the oven and heat oven to 400 degrees. Remove beards from mussels by pulling them away from their shells. Scrub mussels and rinse.
    2. Add olive oil to skillet and heat over medium heat. Add bell pepper, garlic, saffron and red pepper. Cook until veggies have softened, about 5 minutes. Add rinsed rice, parsley and salt and stir to combine. Pour broth over rice and form into an even layer.
    3. Bake for 15 minutes. Add mussels and shrimp to the pan and bake for 8 minutes. Let paella rest for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with lemon and parsley.


Tip: For fluffy, separate grains of rice, rinse rice in a fine mesh stainer under cold water until the water runs clear.
