All in one dish…

Paella is a traditional spanish dish that is absolutely delicious! This warm spiced dish will fragrant your home and fill your belly too!

Sadly, I usually don’t eat paella when I’m out because it most often has pork in it :(, but my version is made with chicken and shrimp so no fear fellow poultry/seafood only fans! The earthy saffron and sweet paprika add delicious flavor while the peas and asparagus really brighten it up.

Tip: Make this on a Sunday and enjoy the leftovers for a couple of days.
