This traditional Spanish paella is packed with mussels, clams, prawns, chicken, chorizo and saffron rice.
A special 4-person paella pan was used to make this traditonal Spanish paella. If you're not able to find a paella pan in a specialty kitchen shop, you can also use a large flat-bottomed pan for this recipe, but it does need to have a flat bottom and able to be heated evenly to cook the rice.
Used a can of Rotelle in place of plum tomatoes. - 15 Mar 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My son woke up this morning with the bug to cook. Eager to assist, I suggested this Paella recipe which I saw printed in the Aug/Sep 14 allrecipes magazine. Other than not being familiar with grated tomatoes, which I found described on the internet, the recipe was easy to follow. I used crushed tomatoes anyway and strained them. Seemed to work fine. Great flavor, dramatic presentation. I will use this one again. Thanks - 06 Jul 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious paella! I left out the chicken and used a package of mixed seafood that I picked up at Whole Foods yesterday, which worked perfect! I scaled this down to 6 servings (1-1/2 cups paella rice), and I needed close to 5 cups of chicken broth in order for the rice to be al dente. Just a warning for others, to have some extra broth hot and ready in case you need it. My husband LOVED this, and is already asking me to make it when his family comes to visit us from Italy over the holidays! - 09 Oct 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
