Step 1: Pick Your Protein
Valencia paella brings together the flavors of both land and sea, featuring shrimp, bay scallops, mussels or clams, chorizo, and chicken. Although these are the classic choices, customize your selections based on what you enjoy!
Step 2: Elevate with Spanish Olive Oil
Olive oil, particularly extra-virgin olive oil, has numerous health benefits, including lowering cholesterol and providing antioxidants. In addition to these great qualities, we love Spanish olive oil for the nutty and rich yet fruity taste it adds to recipes.
Step 3: Build Your Flavor Base
A flavorful broth and a sauté of aromatics is essential for a superb paella. Our go-to base is Aneto Seafood Paella Broth. It's crafted without shortcuts, slowly simmering high-quality ingredients for hours, allowing you to enjoy its homemade taste without the extra work. The addition of onion, garlic, tomato paste, paprika, and saffron turns up the flavor dial and gives the dish its color and character.
Step 4: Seek Quality Rice
One of the key players, and dare we say superstars, of paella is the rice. But not just any rice will do! We like to use Matiz Paella Rice as it absorbs all of the mouthwatering broth while staying relatively firm during the cooking process.
Step 5: Add Your Finishing Touches
Removing the lid or foil from the finished paella, you're met with an enticing aroma that beckons you to dive right in. But trust us, you'll not want to miss this last step! By garnishing with roasted red bell pepper strips and lemon wedges, you're introducing bright, fresh notes that complement the seafood, blend of spices, and more. These finishing touches round out the dish, elevating your eating experience to new heights.
