Served this recipe to a monthly dinner group and it was a hit! Recipe was easy to follow. Be prepared this makes a good hearty serving and filled up a casserole dish easily to the top.I substituted 1 cup of clam juice with the chicken broth and it kept it moist. Will definitely serve again! Read More

I really liked it though it was hard getting the rice just right in the oven mine was still too firm after more than an hour of cooking. I'll definitely try it again and see if I can get it right. Read More

It was sooo easy. I was a little more generous with the saffron because I love it so much. Even my kids ate this all up with-out a single complaint about there being rice in it! They usually complain about rice. Read More

To save on cooking time in the oven and make sure rice gets cooked through i cooked the basmati rice in a rice cooker first. I added about 1 cup of the broth to the rice mixture. I also used 1 can stewed tomatoes. Used italian sausage instead of chroizo. I also soaked the saffron in 1tsp of warm water before adding. Put all mixture in a large baking dish and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. I did not have peas or clams but i added a cup of stir fried snap peas and put them on top of the Paella before serving. Will try his reciep again and add 1/2 tsp turmeric 1/2 tsp paprika Read More

I made this in the dutch oven while camping - all in one pot. I doubled the shrimp and added a little cayenne (I used mild chorizo). It was delicious! It serves way more than six though. I fed six hungry adults (some took thirds) and a handful of kids and we had leftovers. Read More
