My family loved this recipe! We are big seafood fans.
I'm from Alicante (Spain). Nice recipe, but more like a risotto.
TY Jen! for such a lovely recipe! It was absolutely the best paella I have ever eaten, simply delicious! The only changes I made were what proteins I used. Added small scallops, clams, instead of snapper and there were lobster claws at my grocer, so used them instead of the tail. The dish was full of seafood with not a grain leftover! Thanks again!
This was superb! It was also fun to cook with someone else, but it is easy to do alone. The flavors are incredible.
I thought this was very tasty. The only thing I did different was use clams instead of mussels.
I've made this twice now. My boyfriend goes crazy over it. No chanegs to the recipe with the exception of the seafood - due to availability and price (we live in Munich) we have to make some substitutions. Excellent and will make again.
Great and very versatile!
Awesome dish. I made it for Valentine's Day, and it was a huge hit.
