Cook's Note: If bomba rice isn't available, Arborio or another medium-grain rice may be substituted.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Make a sofrito by combining the olive oil
, garlic, onions
and bell peppers
in a 3-quart heavy saucepan
over medium heat. Stir occasionally until the onions are soft, about 10 minutes.
Heat a 14 to 16-inch paella pan
over medium heat. Cook the soppressata (the fat will melt
out of the meat and coat the pan), and then stir in the rice and 1/2 cup of the sofrito. Add the salt and paprika
and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Arrange the calamari, chorizo, clams and mussels
on top of the paella, tucking them into the rice. Pour in 1/2 cup of the chicken stock and simmer
for 5 minutes, gently moving the pan around so the rice cooks evenly and absorbs the liquid.
Pour in 1 cup more of the chicken stock and transfer the paella to the oven for 20 minutes. Arrange the cod, sardines and shrimp on top of the paella and pour in the remaining 1/2 cup chicken stock. Return to the oven for 10 minutes longer. Stir in salt to taste, and then garnish
with the parsley and peas.
