My foray into Spanish Paella

I have no idea what I was doing here, trying to combine two recipies with glaring differences and make something I haven't even seen before, but that doesn't mean I can't snap pics along the way

Hey I love the way you presented your dish. Now, are the veggies canned? Also, do the shrimp have any seasoning? Your dish also reminds me of a gumbo. It looks so great!

Frozen mixed veggies and the shrimp themselves just had salt on them, but the whole dish is seasoned and has a lot going on, so the shrimp picked up the flavors of the dish.

I cooked it about ten minutes after adding the chicken broth to the veggies and rice, then after the chorizo and sausage were put back in I simmered it about ten minutes more, then added the seafood and simmered it about eight minutes (until I saw some shells starting to open), then took it off the heat, covered it and let it rest for fifteen minutes.
