1st Paella

Started with the oil, rice and lots of crushed garlic.


Next, stirred in some red pepper, paprika, pepper, salt lemon zest, parsley, chicken stock and onion.


And finally the meat cooked previously; spiced sausage, chicken marinated in olive oil, paprika, s/p and hot shot and finally some shrimp.


It was fantastic and even better the next day for lunch.

    That looks real good! no final pics? :) Paella is on my list of things to try (damn that list is getting long).
  • Great and daring cook! Paella is not easy and is time consuming. It is one of our favorite cooks on the grill (because the pan won't fit on the stove) and has everything in it from chicken, beef to seafood!

  • Paella is awesome and one of my favorite things that I have never cooked. Very nice.

    That looks really good. I've been wanting to try paella. Two questions - What temp do you cook it at? And is that the pan from World Market? Thanks in advance.

    I cooked it at 350 i Think, not real accurate because the pan was a little large for my LGBGE so I couldnt shut the lid all the way. I placed the egg feet under the lid so it would stay open just above the handle on the paella pan.

    My wife bought the pan for me last christmas at Bed Bath and Beyond I believe.

    Here is more information that you probably want on cooking paella on ceramic cookers: Paella Primer

    It really isn't difficult or time consuming compared to a lot of things people regularly cook. It's fun to cook in front of your guests if the weather is nice. You can explain to them all about paella while they sip sangria and snack on tapas. It's a great dish.
