Very cool! where did you get the pan, looks big.I have been thinking of making a big paella pan.
I love paella, its a very fun dish to do live fire.Here's one of mine, not quite so pretty! The wife isn't keen on shellfish so I keep to chicken and chorizo, and veg of course. It gets its golden hue from being smoked towards the end with the lid on with some hickory on the fire. Gets a nice crust, too!Edit: it would help to include the picture!!!
Mmmmmmm MMM. That looks great. They have paella stands at some of the markets around here, huge, huge paella pans full of the stuff. Can't say it looks better that what you posted Al :-) My father-in-law does an excellent paella, with the exception of the shrimp. They're head-on, which I just can't stand, and they're way, WAYY too salty. Give me some paella with only chorizo and squid, where the chorizo and some of the rice have stuck to the bottom of the pan and gotten nice and crispy, and I'll give you free beer.BTW at least living in Europe I can get real chorizo, the rock-hard stuff from spain, and not that sausage-y stuff you guys have out there.
here´s last year paellai put lobsters in it...thaks for comments!
