From Scratch: Paella

My First Attempt at Paella

This recipe was adapted from The Best of Clean Eating as part of our continuing effort to eat healthier as a couple. I was really excited to make it since it was my first time. I understand, it’s not the original single-protein paella. I have adjusted the recipe with the actual ingredients that I bought from the store and I took some liberties by adding shrimp.* Took a spoonful once it was done and it tasted awesome. No need to add salt as the salt will be coming from the broth, sausage and shrimp. Don’t forget to read instructions before heading out the door to shop for ingredients. 🙂 Based on the pot above, Z and I will have lunch for the next two days.
