Paella is a Valencian dish out of Spain that takes rice and beans and combines it with vegetables and more often than not a medley of seafood such as mussels, clams, and eel (though land meat such as duck and rabbit can be used as well). In addition, a complicated spice blend is utilized – saffron, paprika, onion, turmeric, thyme, oregano, and much more – to make the dish fragrant and addictive in taste. Traditionally, the dish is cooked over citrus and pine to infuse it with flavorful smokes.
This paella seasoning offers an affordable way to make paella as opposed to purchasing all bajillion individual spices. This paella spice blend can also be utilized when cooking baked beans, rice, or as an addition to the cooking broth for shellfish.
