This traditional paella has a wide range of fresh meats and seafood including chorizo, chicken, squid, mussels and prawns; this is in saffron flavoured and coloured rice.
Loved this. Though added some (large squirt) tomato puree (paste) bay leaves, and used low GI Basmarti rice. For me life is too short to skin thinly sliced chorizo and to de-seed tomatoes. Personally I reckon the deliciousness of this meal would hardly be altered by doing so too. I'll make this a family regular. Enjoy this one. - 18 Dec 2010
Used different ingredients. 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. read another recipe on the net from someone in spain, added tomato puree, thyme and 2 bay leaves. very good flavour but my mussels and prawns didn't cook b/c they were stright out from the fridge. next time might add mussels and prawns together with the peas n tomatoes to make sure they cook. - 21 Jul 2008
