How to Make a SEAFOOD LOVERS Spanish Paella

Paella is a kind of identifying symbol for Valencia of Spain. There are lots of stories behind this ancient food.

Folks believed that it took its name from a special wide, shallow pan used to cook the dish.

Paella is cooked for special parties and ceremonies because of its interesting culture. It serves family style, and people traditionally eat directly out of the pan on a round table.

Most of the fishermen, laborers, and farmers cooked Paella with different ingredients. Some people preferred sea foods, others liked white meat like chicken, and a couple of people made it with vegetables. So, it can be cooked for a variety of tastes.

Several people consider seafood as the healthiest one because it’s a high-protein food that is low in calories and saturated fat. In addition, heart attacks, strokes, and many risks from heart diseases will be decreased by eating seafood regularly. Seafood Spanish paella is an excellent choice for this group of people.



  1. First of all prepare and cut the seafood. In order to have a more beautiful texture and flavor, pat all the seafood down with some paper towels and remove extra moisture. After that cut 2cleaned tubes of squid into 1-inch squares, 2tuna steaks into ½ inch squares, 14ounces of cod into ½ inch pieces. Season the tuna pieces and the cod pieces with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
  2. Heat a traditional paella pan or a large sturdy skillet one with a medium-high heat. Pour ¼ cup of extra olive oil into the pan, and after 1 minute season some sea salt.
  3. Bring ½ cup of canned tomato sauce and combine with other ingredients. Use adequate sea salt and ½ teaspoon of sweet smoked Spanish paprika. Mix them lightly for one minute.
  4. Pour 2 ¼ cups of fish broth, and pinch ½ teaspoon of saffron threads. Mix them lightly. The best way to infusing saffron into broth is letting it boil for one extra minute.
  5. Sprinkle a cup of round rice around the pan and mix them. Now shake the pan quickly. Remember not to mix them anymore, since it disrupt the rice. Set aside.
  6. After about 5minutes, it’s time to add pieces of tuna and cod. Combine them so gently.
  7. 15 raw jumbo shrimps, which are patted down with some paper towels and are seasoned with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, and 12 clams need to mix after 2minutes. Do not forget to give the pan quick shake occasionally.
  8. 10 minutes after adding the rice, lower the fire to a low-medium heat and let it simmer between 3-4 minutes, once there is no broth left in the pan.
  9. Heat the pan for 60-90 seconds over medium-high heat to create Socarrat, the famous layer of caramelized burnt rice underneath.
  10. Remove the pan from the heat, and let the rice, which is covered with aluminum foil and a dish cloth, rest for 5minutes.
  11. Uncover the paella pan. Lemon wedges and some freshly chopped parsley are good choices for the garnish.
