This recipe is amazing ! i tried it today and it turned out awesome ! I added spring onions, and green peas to the prawns. I also didn't have saffron so i sprinkled curry powder over the shrimps instead..i also ommited the sausage as i didn't have any..this was a perfect recipe :) thanx alot for sharing :)
THANK YOU! I made this for a friend the other night and she couldn't wait to get to her second bowl. The sweet and spicy flavors make this dish a repeater. I had plenty of leftovers to bring in to work the next and the smell had people from all over the building asking where the aroma was coming from. I couldn't find arborio rice or paella rice. so I just used medium-grain rice. The recipe still came out delicious. Most of the time was spent on preparation.
After 6 mojitos, 1 fight, and some great cuban music the paella was done. It is the best thing we have ever cooked together, and the leftovers made everyone at work jealous. We are going to make it a tradition. NOTE: pre-cook the sausage and prawns.
This was a wonderful meal! Thanks for sharing. I love seafood and this was delish! I had never used arborio rice. Wonderful and I will make again.
Made it for my in-laws! Loved it, loved it, loved it!
