I took this from the BBC Good Food website ( a regular, you may notice). One of the comments on the site was that it ‘ wasn’t paella’ erm well, no, it isn’t. It’s fried rice, influenced be paella. As a quick & easy meal goes, it’s spot on. It has chorizo in it which, frankly, as soon as I notice as an ingredient, goes on my list immediately.
If you want to put the extra effort into an authentic paella then go for it. If you want a quick alternative, this is good enough.
