The Paella de Marisco Recipe literally translates to “Seafood Paella”, meaning it is a Paella dish with seafood as the ingredients. As a rice dish, the seafood complements the rice very well and does not have an overpowering flavor. The harmony between the ingredients makes it an all-around dish to be served anytime and at any occasion.
The Paella De Marisco Recipe is cooked like any regular Paella dish. The only concern is having the seafood thoroughly cleaned as they are cooked on top of the rice eventually. Make sure to brush the mussels and clams very carefully since it gets covered with dirt from the sea. Also, clean out the guts of shrimps. The squid is easy to prepare since it gets chopped off in the end. These are not very hard to do and can take the Paella dish a long way.

Paella De Marisco Recipe Tips and Preparation
Making Paella De Marisco dish is very simple and straightforward, not to mention very delicious. Saffron is mainly used for the rice. It may get expensive but it is worth it for the dish. The base is always the rice with the broth to cook it with. The paprika adds the heat as well as the color. When the rice is halfway done, the seafood ingredients are added. Add them in after mixing the rice so that they can be arranged as you would want them to look like after cooking. The seafood may be halfway cooked or added in raw with a few adjustments to the cooking time. Add the raw seafood not long before the broth is added in. Make sure to watch them as well to prevent having chewy shrimp and squid.
The key on Paella De Marisco Recipe is also having the trusty paella pan and an aluminum foil. Cooking it in the pan gives it a rustic edge and a unique flavor brought by the burnt rice. Yes, burnt rice but not entirely. The dish cooked on the pan with aluminum foil cover can create some burnt rice crust which has a unique scrumptiousness. It absorbs a lot of flavor from the ingredients and generates a new one from the burnt pieces. Never miss out on the crunchy toasted parts of the paella because it holds as much flavor than you could imagine.
