quite authentic and good. italian boyfriend who has eaten paella many times said it tastes like those he had in spain. portions of ingredients are perfect. used safforn threads instead. read another recipe on the net from someone in spain, added tomato paste, thyme and 2 bay leaves. very good flavor but my mussels and shrimps didn't cook coz they were stright out from the fridge. next time might add mussels and shrimps together with the peas n tomatoes to make sure they cook. Important: shellfish MUST be FRESH! don't add too much water, else the rice will be mushy and use aborio rice. they have a firmer bite.

Great paella recipe!. I don't like squid, so I replaced them with clams and also added chicken pieces to the dish. Being that I prefer a more "tomatoey" base, I also threw in some sauce.

excellent recipe but not for the faint of heart as the list of ingredients is big for the average cook. But well worth the effort!

An excellent rendition of a great Spanish "meal". I would and did add just a bit more saffron. The instructions are perfect!

If you love seafood and shellfish this dish is perfect for you. It's a bit of work to gather all of the ingredients, however once you have them all ready they come together like a dream. I first had this dish when I was in Spain -- this recipe tastes just like the original.
