Seafood Paella

A dish of spanish origin, seafood paella is made using various seafood like squids, mussels, and prawns too for to create a feast for the family!
What makes a good paella is no doubt the use of saffron, and the rice used. In our recipe we used arborio rice, which is suitable in the case of this recipe. A good paella pan would be welcome, we got our Le Creuset Buffet Casserole from Metro and it’s been handy. Easy and a treat for all, any beginner can get this done and ready for a year-end party or family feast. Get cooking!
