Paella is arguably the most well-known Spanish dish. Paella Valenciana, with rabbit and chicken, and seafood paella are two types of authentic paella that originated from the Valencian area.



  1. Using a mortar and pestle tool, gently pound the garlic. Grind until the texture is smooth, almost paste-like.

  2. In the same mortar and pestle tool, combine the salt, garlic paste, paprika, chopped fresh parsley, and 2 tablespoons olive oil, and crush with the pestle until the entire mixture turns into a paste. Set it aside.

  3. Preheat the pan or the paellera with 4 tbsp of the remaining olive oil. Then fry the shrimp for about a minute per side. Place the shrimp on a platter and set aside.

  4. Sauté the onion and tomato in the same pan with the remaining oil. After that, combine the green peas and paste mixture we made previously. Mix things up a little.

  5. Pour in water and clam juice. Allow it to come to a boil.

  6. Add the saffron and paella rice. Cover the lid and adjust the heat to low. Cook for 25 minutes.

  7. On top of it, arrange clams, shrimp, and bell peppers. Cook for a few more minutes, or until the rice is fully cooked. Add more water if necessary.

  8. Everything has been completed. Serve, share, and enjoy your meal!
