  1. Why does he take out the shellfish only to return them later and cook for more time? Isn't it so as to not overcook it? But he covers the pan and cook it for longer. I'm confused

  2. Maybe not authentic but an excellent recipe, better even than many  of  the Paella meals I  have tried in Spain  over the years. In fact while in Sitges one year we were so disappointed with what was on offer we made our own Paella with ingredients from their amazing market.

  3. I love paella sometimes I cook with thymes & basil but rosemary and saffron are the best … everyone has their own version of paella and it's just good

  4. Get over it. There are many ways to make food! I'm black and everybody thinks they can make collard greens, fried chicken, mac and cheese, potato salad, yams. Lol… food is what you like.

  5. The Cuban paella is probably the best paella yup u could go with. This guy adds lobster stock to substitute for real lobster. I can see with the ingredients he uses he likes to cut corners. Very sad. I would like to see original dishes stay original

  6. This poor man here is making some kind of Mexican Rice, not paella. Nowadays any outsider can cook a so-called "paella" and call it that way and people who have never been in Spain or eaten paella in their lives will be easily deceived and fall for it. Usually REAL paella is a moderately priced dish. I would be wary of restaurants outside Spain, with non-Spanish cooks, that serve "paella" and charge you extra for what is not.

    There's a REAL Spanish restaurant in Connecticut, USA, that serves REAL paella. The owner is from Galicia but since I was born in Valencia I can tell the real thing from a fake and I've been going there for 25 years without any complain. They serve other good dishes typical from Spain as well.
    Now, some of you may think that because it's a "Spanish" dish it's also related to Latin America. In other words, like some ignorant dudes say "Aw, it's the same shit" and mix Mexican with Chilean, and Cuban, and flamenco, and rumba, and so forth, Hollywood style.
    I remember the instance when some Americans arrived at this particular restaurant in Connecticut and after sitting there and reading the menu they asked the waiter if they served burritos and other Mexican stuff. The waiter called the owner and the owner told them, in good terms, to get lost. I was at the next table enjoying paella with my American wife and we had a good laugh afterwards at the ignorance of some people.

    And another thing. There are some commenters here who think that they know more about paellas than Spaniards themselves and call us elitists and all kinds of names. We just don't give a rat's rear end (culo de rata) about their criticism. They may as well go blowin' in the wind and go screw somewhere else.
