    I'mPat's Note:

    This recipe is from the local Western Australian Newspaper. Am hoping to make this myself soon but I will use spring onion (scallions) instead of the shallots (for dietary reason) and omit the coriander (cilantro) because we don't like it. Times at this point are an estimate, if you should try please let me know if they are correct.

      Terrific recipe! One-pan easy and delicious. I used some yellow onion instead of the shallots. Served with some roasted cherry tomatoes and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Yummy! I've made this several times now! Easy, great flavor and adaptable to personal tastes. I tend to add in sliced zucchini or other veggies in the last 5 min. A must try! thank you for the recipe!

      I really loved this take on paella. We used the tiny salad shrimp and they were perfect. Thanks for posting.
