    Vicki in CT's Note:

    Spain is quite famous for its seafood stews, and Shrimp Zarzuela reflects this culinary heritage. Golden Spanish olive oil, unique sherry wine vinegar, sweet paprika and fragrant saffron are the Spanish flavors that give this one-pot meal its character. The traditional seafood dishes of Spain use a variety of shellfish from the Mediterranean Sea; we simplified the recipe by focusing on ever-popular shrimp. Round out this meal by serving a premiere cheese from Spain, such as Manchego or Cabrales. From Foods of Spain.

      This was very simple and delicious! I made a little extra sauce to flavor my rice. Made for "My Food Odyssey" for Andorra.

      This was perfect!! Our three girl's loved it. We doubled the recipe so that we could have leftovers the next day...which did not happen. We served it with Saffron rice and crusty bread.

      I would give this 10 stars if possible. Waaaaa, I didn't have saffron and I had to use regular sherry in place of the sherry vinegar. Our most upscale grocery didn't have either. I am ordering saffron and the sherry vinegar on line tonight and will make this again asap. I can't even imagine how good it will be with the proper ingreds.
