Although I changed the recipe just a little and used linquisa instead of chorizo this was the very best, and was easy to fix. I prepared most of the ingredients the day before. IThe best idea was to marinade the shrimp and chicken. We had 6 friends for dinner and they were all impressed.
Getting ready to make it again. It is becoming a family favorite. When I visit son in law it is the first request. Great food.
This was delicious!!! I didn't have any chorizo, so I substituted breakfast link sausage cut into chunks. I also didn't have scallops or clams or mussels, but I did have shrimp and chicken. Besides those ingredients that I didn't have, I had everything else on hand, so it came together very quickly. Made plenty, so there was leftovers for a few lunches, which made the family very happy!
I used the concept of this recipe but made my changes in the seasonings...roasted a red pepper...used chicken thighs rather than chicken breast...added a can of artichoke hearts. We really enjoyed our meal. Thanks for the guide!!!
We weren't 100% wild about this recipe and probably won't be making it again. The combination of herbs/spices were overpowering in relation to the seafood and chicken.
Didn't like the way mine turned out. I was expecting a better flavor.
It came ot great. I love Paella. I added the seefood at the end after cooked in frying pan with the marinate.
Great recipe tried it 10-26-2008 - Great and easy to prepare!!
My son and husband really, really, really (my 6 yr olds words) liked this recipe. Especially the mussels. The chicken and shrimp were very good and well seasoned after the 24 hr. marinating time. The saffron, being extremely expensive was wonderful and very fragrant. My house smelled great and it was a beautiful presentation. I only thought to take a picture after we had eaten almost all of it! We will make it again and hopefully remember to take a picture.
Exceptional recipe - almost exactly the same as we served in the restaurant in Rio de Janeiro - we did "spice it up" a little with a local pepper sauce - the closest of which is a Louisiana sauce called "Crystal." Try Brazilian linguica (if you can find it) in place of the Chorizo - and some hearts of palm
