Sound good, but a question... before you add the canned tomatoes, do you strain them or ad with the liquid in the can? And can the chorizo be substituted?
I agree with reviwer Chris Berg below.
Use or make stock for the rice.
Add pimenton. Sure, the chorizo will have some, but add more. Also, saute the onions first and add rice then start adding stock.
Peas, lemons and herbs at the end will give it even more flavor.
I do agree with the OP that shrimp should be cooked either separately or late in the process, but use the shells early for the stock. There are many paellas where shrimp is added much to early and the flesh of the shrimp is just awful. Be kind in the cooking of the shrimp.
I’m about to make this recipe for about the fifth time- it’s amazing. I didn’t change a thing, except cockles are hard to find so I just used a pound of muscles.
We made this last night, following the recipe almost exactly. The only change we made was using chicken stock rather than water, assuming it would bring more flavor. The meal was excellent!
In the future, we plan to use sliced chorizo rather than ground, and we plan to try another user's suggestion of making stock out of the shrimp tails. we also under-salted this; the flavors didn't pop quite as much right away, but a little extra salt afterwards brought the flavors through. We'd double the batch next time, too, so there would be more leftovers!
Loved the process and the end result. Definitely recommend as way to enjoy some time cooking with your spouse/partner!
We made this tonight and it was excellent. We doubled it and made two paella pans full, and dropped one off for a neighbour. I just hope our teenagers don't clean up all the leftovers tonight so that we can have some for lunch tomorrow.
I have not tried this recipe but and agree that there are many ways of making paella I think some of the suggestions made by Chris Berg would improve the recipe and I agree, no arborio rice.
My puzzlement, however, is that the recipe starts by preheating the oven to 350, but I cannot see where in any step it is put into the oven. What did I miss? Every step has the ingredients cooked on the stove.
