Picture of Grilled Paella
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

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.
