Paella de Marisco Recipe

Paella de Marisco is another delicious variation of seafood paella. This recipe produces a superior end result that you will surely enjoy.

This Paella de Marisco recipe makes use of mussels, clams, shrimp, and fish fillet. The clams and mussels were boiled in water. The water used to boil the shellfish became the clam juice that adds flavor to the paella rice.

I used calasparra rice for this paella recipe. This is one of the best rice varieties that you can use in making paella. Bomba rice is another good rice variety for paella.

Paella is best eaten with squeezed lemon. This can be paired with white wine.
