I made this for my mom for mother's day. To reduce fat, I used 1 lb of boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into chunks and 1lb of medium large cooked shrimp. I also used one box of dirty rice mix and one of red beans & rice. It also came in handy to not use all of the seasoning pack. I also used Pam garlic spray instead of cloves of garlic. This is not a recipe for those who like bland foods! :-)
Very flavorful, but the recipe calls for too much meat.
It's good, most Paellas are bland - this has FLAVOR!
this was a winner. it was gone befor i knew it.
Just so so... If anyone finds any exceptional Paella recipes out there, please post them here. Basically, this didn't taste as good as what I tried in Barcelona; it was too bland. I had leftovers but ended up throwing it away because it just didn't sound good after my first encounter.
i loved it ,but i made a seafood stock instead of water and the flavor had an amazing kick.
AWESOME! And Easy! This is a cool group dish, plus people will think you spent all day on it! The house smells great, feels like I'm in New Orleans!
If you can get Rabideaux sausage out of Iowa, LA, it is out of this world. Also, I think sauteeing the white part of green onions and adding the green tops at the end will give this more Cajun flair.
