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.

Thanks TL. It was.

I loved the chorizo sausage. I don't know how authentic Giant Eagle's was, but it was delicious. So I not only made something I haven't made before, I found another food I liked.

I think I'll turn some of it into fried rice for lunch.

and, last year there was that most memorable pppc of yours, (pac's personal pigskin challenge)--a delightful succession of sunday food creations, enormously popular with many of us dcers, and quite independent of anyone's football affiliations. (go ravens)
pac, i love this paella dish of yours, every step of the way. and then too, there's this fondness of mine for the use of alliteration....

merely a return favor for your 'socarrat'.



btw, i used chorizo in a dish last week as a first time impulsive add-on. it really perked up the sc meatball stew i was making. now i am looking for more easy recipes using chorizo.

SC meatball stew? I think some of us will be needing a recipe for that.
