Kimchi Paella recipe

I love eating Paella, love kimchi, and was cutting back on carbs, so I came up with this Spanish/Korean fusion recipe. It may sound strange but it’s delicious and easy. By substituting grated cauliflower for rice, it’s also very low-carb! 

1 whole raw cauliflower, grated to a rice-like texture

1 chopped red pepper

1 cup shrimp peeled deveined shrimp

2/3 c frozen peas

1-2 cups kimchi, according to taste

2 T oil
Heat oil medium-high in a large pan, and stir-fry grated cauliflower and red pepper until cauliflower begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add kimchi and cook about 5 minutes more. Add shrimp and peas and cook until shrimp is opaque.


Note: Kimchi is a flavourful fermented vegetable dish usually made with cabbage, garlic, vinegar, chile pepper and other spices. It is very healthy and due to fermentation contains “good bacteria” that helps with digestion. It is available at Asian food stores and major supermarkets.
