A recipe from your country Paella is a famous Spanish dish of saffron- flavoured rice cooked with meats, seafood and vegetables.Originating in the rice- growing areas on Spain’s Mediterranean coast the dish is especially associated with the region of Valencia. Paella takes its name from the ‘paellera’, the utensil in which it is cooked, a flat round pan with two handles; paella is traditionally eaten from the pan. To prepare paella, pieces of meat such as chicken, pork or rabbit and seafood such as clams, shrimps, mussels, crayfish and squid are sauted in olive oil with onions, garlic and herbs and removed from the pan. Rice, tomatoes, saffron and stock are simmered together, the meats and seafood mixed in and the dish is garnished with peas, peppers and other vegetables.Traditional paellas are made out of doors over a wood fire.
