Nice pick on the wine. From what I hear most of the wine from that region is consumed by the locals.
With the seafood paella you could also match with just about any Spanish white wine-quiz the wine guy at the store or ask the wine guy at your neighborhood shop (Portland Wine Merchants-35th & Hawthorne).
You are making me want to break out my paella pan!

He, he, you did a great job Heather! Your paella sounds great to me!!! I do it differently but nobody does it the same way... here there's a saying that goes this way... "cada maestrillo tiene su librillo" each master or teacher has his own book... So, as long as it tastes good... that's it!!!! Buen provecho :D

2008-05-19T03:14:00.000-07:00

Mmmm... yummmmm... mmmmmmmm...

When I was in Mallorca as a kid I saw a giant paella being cooked - the pan was 2.7 metres wide!!



Mmmm. That's all I can think of.

2008-05-17T22:55:00.000-07:00

Mmmm. That's all I can think of.

2008-05-17T20:03:00.000-07:00

Giz - Gosh, thank you! I really didn't know that paella could be so versatile until I read the Wikipedia entry. ;)

Jube - Rawr! (I'm doing that wildcat clawing movement with my hand)

I usually have a huge tub of shrimp stock in the freezer, and I do have a ziplock full of shrimp shells in there, but it's like 90 fucking degrees out and even turning on the oven was masochism.



¡Ole!That looks really good. The only thing I wou...

2008-05-17T16:51:00.000-07:00

¡Ole!

That looks really good. The only thing I would do differently (apart from some bivalves) would be to peel the shrimp and make the broth from their shells first.

It's a total turn-on that you're reviewing wine now, too.

2008-05-17T15:56:00.000-07:00

Whoa!!!! The prawns in the paella look absolutely to die for. Smoked sturgeon - what a treat - I don't think there's a finer fish around. Everybody makes a different paella - this one isn't messed up - it's clean and looks just wonderful.

2008-05-17T15:22:00.000-07:00

Kevin - Paella is actually a hot dish, not a salad (did you read the part where I said to bake it until browned and crispy?). A seafood salad sounds really good, though!



That seafood salad looks great!

2008-05-17T13:20:00.000-07:00

That seafood salad looks great!

2008-05-17T10:51:00.000-07:00

Courtney - Trader Joe's has decent saffron for cheap. I don't use it often, but I'm glad I have it!

Peter the Greek - It was weird that we made similar dishes! Your prawns looked a lot better than mine, though. :)

Susan - I really didn't want to go to the store again. :P Forced creativity is sometimes all I get!

Peter a la Oz - I reeeallly wish I'd had some chorizo on hand for this. I do have some venison chorizo, but it's just not the same!

Lisa - My screen could use a good dusting, thanks! :D

Jan - I couldn't imagine just having a big-ass plate of paella as an appie and then diving into an entree! Oh wait, I try to do that type of shit all the time. :\

Syd - Woo-hoo! I'll bring the bourbon!

Judy - I never realized that you don't have a year-round growing season. My fantasies of moving to Florida have been dashed.

Marc - Heh, well I did get an A in Creative Writing when I was in high school. :P

Jen - I am so with you on the Ikea tip. They have tagines too. And I need more cute shit to photograph. Ikea!

Leigh - Heh, I didn't keep that up too well, did I? I ate a chili dog and jalapeño cheese fries with a cold bottle of Fat Tire for dinner last night. SO GOOD. :P

Foodycat- The smoked fish did give it a nice flavor!

Catherine - You are WAY too good for my ego, honey. I sure wish I had the time and talent to write the next Serve it Forth!

Valli - Sometimes you just gotta suck it up and make do! :) I can't say I've ever had Kokanee. Sounds very interesting, though!

Pilar - I am delighted you found my blog! Please come often. :D I love the snowy owl.

Mike - Thanks!

Great paella Heather. I enjoyed the fact that you utilized what you had on hand to come up with a very tasty dish!!Here in the valley I would have to add Kokanee which is a land locked salmon here in the Okanagan.

Are you the love child of MFK Fisher? Cause this genius has to be genetic.
Wine choice, very excellent. Who's stocking those shelves by the fish???
Robert Parker's love child?

2008-05-17T02:55:00.000-07:00

This looks so gorgeous! I love seafood. I really, really need a paella pan. Looks like it's a trip to Ikea (I have a reduction stovetop and they have reasonable pans that work).

2008-05-16T17:22:00.000-07:00

Heather that looks so incredible and good for you with trying to stick to your coast for protein and produce. Sure hope you have a better shot at it than I do here in the deep, deep non-summer growing season south!!!

I love how you always mix a bunch of flavors together (prawn, cod and sturgeon). I am so boring when it comes to that but then again I am cooking for 2 young'uns!

I just finished dinner and I'd STILL dive head first into that plate. Naked.

2008-05-16T16:42:00.000-07:00

That looks wonderful, Heather.

The first time I ate paella was in Spain. It was classed as an appetizer on the menu, and allegedly served 2. Honestly, it would have fed a family of 4 for a few days.

And yes, we were foolish enough to order a main course.



Wow, I want to lick my screen, dust and all! Serio...

2008-05-16T16:23:00.000-07:00

Wow, I want to lick my screen, dust and all! Seriously, that is a good looking plate of food.

2008-05-16T16:10:00.000-07:00

Love saffron and pimenton...and it looks like you've done great with the paella. I'm really surprised there's no pork in it...hmmm

2008-05-16T15:25:00.000-07:00

The paella looks wonderful! I love one pot wonders like this. I also love a girl who's not afraid to wing it with the ingredients at hand!
