Seafood Paella recipe for 4 that’s guaranteed to impress!
Check out our seafood paella recipe using fresh tiger prawns, monkfish, squid and mussels. This dish looks stunning and it is the perfect seafood paella recipe to feed a crowd at a dinner party. You can also vary the choice and quantities of seafood. Using lobster or langoustines for example, will make the dish extra special.
There are many variations to the classic seafood paella recipe. In Catalunya, they have the tradition of including pieces of chicken, pork, rabbit, duck or sausage in their seafood paellas. In Valencia, where they claim the dish as their birthright, chef Llorenç Millo remarks that “paella has as many recipes as there are villages, and nearly as many as there are cooks”. To me, an authentic seafood paella has two key ingredients, a homemade stock made with fish bones and shellfish and the freshest of Spanish seafood you can get, simple.
