I made a reasonable facsimile of Paella. Not really a planned thing, more of a what’s in the fridge, freezer & cupboard that needs cooking & what dish will they go well together in. How about trying your first Paella? Okay. I loosely followed the directions on the bag, but didn’t have artichokes, piquillo peppers or their jarred tomato sofrito, which looked like thick tomato sauce in the photos, so I used a 1/2 jar of sundried tomato bruschetta & this homemade roasted tomato purée.
Along w/ingredients mentioned above, Baby Bells, Broth, Saffron, Smoked Paprika, Smoked Salt, Shrimp, Lobster, Christorra Chorizo, Peas for Green, lemon
It was easier than I thought but clearly I need more practice. Maybe not clearly, but trust me. I don’t have a paella pan, but did manage to get a little socarrat on the bottom. The problem was too much liquid - in order to absorb it everything overcooked. Hubs had 2 helpings and thought it was great, lol. But I could use a good recipe. Paging @Barca.
