I have seen the Spaniards how they are prepared in a large pan for 20 people. Slowly but surely is tasty. While we were making paella nayadohme steak.

paella is made from shellfish and rice, and not with meat and in no case more of our delicious steaks:-)

Rumi, much messing Milan, paella, in principle, there are two kinds of meat! Not only from mussels contains shrimp, squid, octopus! So do not give such opinions please very stupid, excuse me!

It is delicious cooked it, and I know how it is, and put everything any meat, I know because I've been to many restaurants and I've tried all kinds of paella, many greetings from Catalonia.

I know that there are many types of paella - seafood, chicken and seafood, with several types of meat, and even have vegetarian paella.

High arguing ... Would you please explain what is saffron?

Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world - these are internal, very thin petals of a kind of crocus (not stamens! ). Collected by hand. The biggest producers are Spain and Iran.
