Seafood Paella, A Portion of Heaven, June 21, 2004 - 01:22 PM
Reviewer: Francesca Shaw from Manchester, England
I made this dish in my home economics lesson. The criteria was to make a dish suitable for a peslo-vegetarian (a vegetarian who still eats fish) but that had an international flavour. For example, we could have made fish and chips, a classic british dish but that does not contain red meat or poultry. The recipe I chose was a quick seafood paella. After browsing many recipe books, I turned to the internet. That was where I found this delightful recipe. The meal was quick and simple enough for me to prepare, even when in a cramped unit sharing with 4 or 5 other students, and I made it in just under an hour! If I could make it under thjese conditions, then I'm sure anyone else could make one just as easily. So if you're looking for something quick and easy, yet a dish that tastes heavenly, you've just found it. Enjoy.
