Paella Cook: lots of pics

I wanted to share my first and second paella attempts.  The first was chicken and sausage and the second was a mixed seafood and chicken.  Both turned out amazing and I followed the recipes from The Naked Whiz website.  It takes a bit of time, and you need to do a lot of prep work, but it really is not to hard The one mistake I made was putting in too many ingredients in the pan, it tasted great but the presentation was a bit cluttered.

p.s. Don't forget to make Sangria!

  • Here is the second cook pics.  I changed the rice from Arborio to Bomba and it did make a difference I think, easier to cook and more forgiving.  The Naked Whiz has some website links where you can order it.

    @ OP you are quite right about the labor-intense efforts-but its well worth it.  Congrats on the great cooks. I too follow TNW's recipe with minimal variations and always a winner!

    Look's good. I just got my paella pan this weekend at the Plano eggfest and can't wait to try. I think I will try the seafood first. Thanks for posting.

    Nicely done! Paella on the grill is excellent & well worth the effort. What sized paella pan & egg are you using? TIA

    Looks awesome! Paella is one of my favorite things to make on the egg!

    @jfm0830 His pan looks like the one I bought early this summer William Sonoma Paella Pan mine is the 15" on a LBGE

    I closed the lid on my egg towards the end of the cook and my handles no longer are red haha... 

    Nicely done

    Your paella looks good! Yup, lots of work but quite rewarding. Get any soccarat?

  • @R2Egg2Q No soccarat yet, trying to work out the kinks to get it going, hard to balance not overcooking the meat, especially the seafood, and creating the soccarat.

  • @jfm0830 I have a Large BGE and the pan is a 15" from Sur La Table, it was like $20.  I think it is the same as the Williams Sonoma one.

    On the first cook I also closed the lid on one of the handles of the pan and spilled some of the broth out, I thought I ruined the cook but it still turned out fine.  Learn from my mistake :)
