I made this for New Years Day and it was incredible. Our friends are asking for it to be our new food tradition.

I started this recipe by cutting it in half. I did with all the seafood but the rest was left as directed.The chorizo I sliced before cooking added the onions and fennel right to it. I did have to add 2 cloves of garlic, a hefty pinch of saffron and a pinch of habanaro pepper powder. I also used fresh chopped tomatoes in place of the canned. I enjoyed the way hints of the zest came through. Very Good!
