Laurinda Reis says:

Garlic adds more taste when you actually turn it into a paste, the way that you cut it into huge pieces will not give the food no taste and if you bite into it it will taste bad!

Billy says:

You did this backwards. You can't tell someone. It to stir the rice and then tell them to add saffron and somehow gently stir that into the blend. The saffron is such crucial ingredient.

concetta bologna says:

hello may i use aborio or canaroli rice? thank you.

Ryan Dale says:

There are lots of ways to make paella and i do prefer the seafood variety. But this is about as far removed from the "valencia" version as you can get. The Valencia paella typically has rabbit, chicken, green beans and no seafood at all!

Lyn Tapon says:

bluefishbrad says:

By the time that rice is done the clams probably taste like rubber bands ….

Frank black says:

This just isn't paella. I'm trying not to swear. Never move the rice when youve poured it in the paella(pan). It will release the starch and you never want that. The rest of the recipie is just as awful as that point.
Un Valenciano

Mark Barton says:

eat paella all the time I live in spain.. recipe looks good but tastes like crap far away from a good Spanish made paella

Marta Morató says:

I'm from Catalunya and here we make it very different. First we use to put seafood and after one chopped onnion and two cloves of garlic. After all, when it's cooked, we add vegetables and at the end, we add tomato. It's different, but onion I think it's necessary.

This is not the way to make this dish!!!!!!

Noah Villagomez says:

What song is this?

Lewis Dolby says:

I should think this is disgusting and tastes nothing like proper Spanish paella, talk about overcooking the seafood!

Prangie says:

Good song choice.

The seafood must be dry and chewy as hell once the rice is done cooking.

pat raj says:

Hi, how many cups of rice to water ratio ? How many minutes do you let it cook ? Do you cook in hot flame for few minutes & low flame for few more minutes. Hope you can explain. Thanks
