Method

Heat a heavy-based cast iron pan, or similar, add some oil. Then add the pork belly slices and cook until they are golden. Reduce the heat slightly. Add the chorizo and garlic, allow the garlic to brown slightly.

Now add the anchovy fillets, beans, peas, tomato purée and paprika. Season and add the chicken stock.

Now add the saffron, rice and herbs and bring the mix to the boil. Allow to boil until the liquid has reduced right down and the rice becomes visible.

At this point, turn the heat down to its lowest setting. Zest the orange on top of the rice and cover with a lid or tinfoil. Allow to cook for another 15 minutes. The sides and base should caramelise and go crispy.

Serve immediately in hot bowls with some lemon wedges.
