Feel like sinking my teeth into my monitor! Looks good! You are back with a vengeance with your cooking!
LOL... thanks ladies! Still got a long way to go with the paella. I must learn how to do this properly!
jq: Yes, my cooking mojo is back. Hopefully it stays for a long while. Unfortunately, it eats into my stitching time too. Can't have your cake and eat it right? :P
Hmm, it looks really good. I did quite a bit of the dish a while ago(used to live in Spain) and one of the important rules is to not stir the rice before the end of the cooking. And the ingredients (seafood, chicken etc) give the flavour to the rice so you have to dose them well and cook them in the right amount of olive oil etc.
As for the gambas/almeras al pil pil, that's my favourite tapas and starter dish, great for dipping bread in and so very easy to make. Viva España!
Lotus: I observed the no stirring rule and the rice caramelised very nicely at the bottom. I enjoyed scraping and eating those bits. Sort of like our Sar Po Farn.
I have yet to find a tapas or starter I didn't like yet, pig that I am.
Yes, viva España indeed!
It does look really good even though you didn't use the paella pan. My husband and his good friend shared to buy a proper paella pan and so far they tried cooking it once and the result was SUPER LEKKER :-) With chicken it does give flavour to the rice also. I requested for lots of seafood cos I am a seafood lover :-)
Magdeline, that does it! I'm going to get me a 100% made in Spain paella pan. LOL. I didn't use chicken this time. Instead, I used chorizo sausages which I had sitting in the fridge.Post a Comment
