My mom loves to make paella for big gatherings and It's always delicious. This time we decided to do it on the grill and it was fantastic. The grill is the best way to get a nice brown crunchy bottom on the rice. We like to use chicken, chorizo, clams, shrimp, and mussels in ours, but some like to add other seafood like fish or squid.

Step 1: Ingredients

6 boneless chicken thighs (seasoned with salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, cayenne pepper, paprika, and 4 tbl olive oil)
1 doz clams (rinsed thoroughly)
1 doz mussels (rinsed thoroughly)
1 lb shrimp (peeled)
2 links chorizo sausage (sliced)

2 medium sized onions (diced)
1 lb tomatoes (diced)
1 red pepper (diced)
1 green pepper (diced)
6 cloves garlic (minced)

8 cups chicken broth
1 tsp saffron

4 cups basmati rice
Gorgeous pictures. I'd never thought about using my grill - great idea!
Looks really good, but in Spain we use bomba rice instead of basmati, tastes better. We don't use chorizo or any other sausage, but it's a good option. I have to try the american style paella. This spanglish is killing me and sorry if i have errors, english level in spain is terrible.
Good to know! I'll have to try doing it the more authentic way. Thanks for the info!
Holy cow my mouth is watering
Looks delicious!!! OLÉ!
Oh wow, this looks extremely tasty!
