This Seafood Paella is a dish made with a rice base and any type of ocean fish can be used with it.
Ordinary Paella is also a type of rice dish. It originated from Spain and has become very popular and well known around the world.
It originated in the fields of a region called Valencia in eastern Spain.
The Valencian people prepared this dish with whatever ingredients they could lay their hands on like - rabbit, snails or vegetables.
Today paella has spread to every region of the world, using just about any kind of ingredient that goes well with rice!
This is what a typical Paella looks like.
In this website – however - we are more concern with seafood than anything else. But the basic rules also apply here when it comes to ingredience for your Paella.
Actually, there are as many versions of paella as there are cooks.
It may contain anything from chicken, pork, shellfish, fish, eel, squid, beans, peas, artichokes or peppers.
Saffron is the spice used that also turns the rice into a wonderful golden colour which is an essential part of the dish.
As we said earlier, there are as many versions of paella as there are cooks and if you want to experiment with this dilisious dish we will soon have even more of a variety to choose from – want to do your part?
