Paella is a popular rice dish that originated from the Valencia region of Spain. This is usually made of short grain yellow rice and cooked in a special wide-flat pan called “Paellera”.Paella Marinera is a type of seafood paella that showcases the richness of the ocean. This particular recipe involves different seafood, which I think is a very lovely combination.
