This paella contains prawns, lobster tails, clams and mussels but it is always the whole chicken that my friends remember which is where the name comes from.
Your recipe is great! There are many different things that can be included or omitted in paella and the recipe changes from one region to the next. I use 3 times the amt of saffron and omit the curry. Good job on your recipe. Thanks! - 28 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great recipe - to answer a previous user the trick to "yellow" and colorful rice is the saffron! Add more as another user did (even though it's red) it will make the rice a beautiful yellow color. - 24 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was my first attempt at Paella and it turned out wonderfully! I read somewhere that turmeric can be used in place of saffron--although not the same it is definitely less expensive BUT beware...a little goes a long way! - 21 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
