Hake,Clams & Chorizo in Broth w/Paella Rice

Leanne D.


I received this recipe in an email,it looked so good I wanted to make it.I love clams in a well seasoned both. I have never heard of hake ,so I'm going to use swordfish. I'm also going to eliminate the chorizo,I know a Spanish dish would definitely call for chorizo but I'm making this my own. Other changes I'll make is to use seafood broth instead of chicken.
