What makes the authentic Spanish Paella so flavorful is the use of powdered saffron. For this reason I eliminated the oregano and tumeric and used 1/16th teaspoon saffron. Its pricey, but you have to use only a wee bit to really enhance all the flavors of this wonderful dish. I also cut the broth to 3 cups and used 1/2c white wine, 1 pound shrimp not 2; 4 ounces of chorizo not 8 of italian sausage. Use peas instead of green peppers and you will have an authentic Paella. This is good...authentic is the best.Thanks Amy.
This is NOT paella. This is Jambalaya, and not a great one at that. Paella is made with saffron and not the other types od herbs listed, and it is traditionally made with whole chicken parts and seafood (most still in shells). For a better version of this recipe try searching for Jambalaya, and for authentic Paella, look for a recipe with seafood and saffron.
Took this to my company potluck and everyone loved this. One quick note though, this recipe makes a HUGE amount of food. When I make it for my family, I only make a half recipe and we still have enough to feed 6-7 people.
We loved this recipe...very unique blend of tastes! This is a refreshing combination and my daughter of 5 cleaned her bowl. I omitted the turmeric and on the second time I made this, due to lack of hot Italian sausage available, I just used mild sausage and it did not compromise the taste. Thanks Amy for this great recipe. Will make again and again!!
This is one of my favorite recipes from this site - absolutely delicious! The only change I make is to substitute sea scallops (added 5 minutes before the shrimp) for the hot sausage (too spicy for my taste). Also, I use already flavored saffron rice instead of white and omit the tumeric. I made this Christmas Eve for my parents and grandmother and everyone loved it! Thanks for a great recipe.
This is the best recipe! I got this recipe over 2 years ago from allrecipes.com, and I make it all the time. This one is a keeper!
Also, please cook the rice separately and you won't have to wait for it to get done. When the rice is done, you pour back into the pot when the rest of the meal is done. Mix it together.
Perfect paella, in my humble opinion. I too used chorizo and once the shrimp was in, we placed little neck clams on top and covered the pot until they steamed open. My gang and company couldn't get enough. Thanks so much Amy!
What a great little recipe! I omitted the celery and changed a few other things around and it was fairly quick, tasty and provided a bountiful portion of food. The safron is always a better way to go if you can but for the poor man tumeric works fine.
