Nothing brings together family or a group of friends like an elegant Seafood Paella. Colorful, festive and full of flavor, this dish is a perfect centerpiece to any family or gathering or special occasion, and is best when shared. Originating from Spain, a proper Paella utilizes a special kind of rice - Bomba or Calasparra, which absorbs liquids up to three times as much as standard rice. The broth is infused with Saffron threads, one of the most expensive spices in the world, which gives the Paella its distinct flavor, aroma, and yellow hue.
Most cooks will be daunted at the preparation of ingredients and the steps necessary to achieve a perfectly cooked Paella. The Anova Precision Oven does a wonderful job at making sure all the delicate seafood gets cooked to perfection. This gives you more time to concentrate on tending to the rice and making sure it gets cooked perfectly on top of your stove.
It also makes it easier to achieve that toasted crust in the bottom of the pan called socarrat which is a characteristic of an authentically cooked Paella. A quick rest in the Oven prior to serving with some steam ties every ingredient together and keeps everything delicious and moist.
Note: A 12 inch Paella pan serves 4-6 people and comfortably fits in the Anova Precision Oven.
