    canarygirl's Note:

    This is a wonderfully flavorful meal. Chicken or pork may be substituted for the seafood, or try a "mixed" paella, with a little of each!

      This turned out quite tasty. It wasn't difficult to make, either. My only complaint is that there seemed to be too much liquid and it turned out a little soggy; there wasn't much of the crispy rice at the bottom of the pan like there should be with good paella. I would use this recipe again, but I might omit a half-cup or even whole cup of water next time.

      Really Tasty!! I used organic long grain rice so I added earlier to be sure it was cooked. Had some leftover...tasted even better the next day. Easy to kids helped chop veges and read the recipe. Husband and mother-in law like it alot !! She's hard to please so thanks for a good one.

      I think arborio (the kind used in rissoto)rice would work best in this dish. It does need saffron as that is really the essence of the dish. I think it needs peas. In my view, you can't have paella without peas, but that's a matter of taste (actually that's usually how the Spanish do it too).
