      Fantastic. I used a mix of chicken and shrimp. The lemon juice really makes this dish sing as does the saffron. Best Paella recipe I have come upon, updated and authentic ingredients, quick cooking and delicious end product

      Other than using bacon instead of prosciutto, and omitting the mussels, which I dont like, I followed the recipe, what a marvellous combination of flavours and colour!!!! This is truly a feast for a king, and one of those dishes which really makes your mouth water in anticipation!! I just cant imagine what you could add to this to make it better, a fabulous restaurant quality meal at home, definitely a great one to share with guests! Thank you Deantini, really enjoyed this, made for ZWT 8

      Te chuparse los dedos! I was questionable about some of the step, but this came out beautifully! I followed the directions, but had to use long grain rice and double the amount of chicken since I didn't have fresh mussels (too bad, they really add to the presentation). I used Smoked Spanish Paprika which I purchase just for this dish. The aroma was awesome! I never used it before. This recipe is delicioso and so versatile. Thank you so much for posting. Made for ZWT5.
