    Delicious! I use less chorizo (the flavour can be overpowering) and add prawns, paprika and tumeric.

    Lovely paella! Added a little seasoning throughout and left on the heat for about 5 more minutes. Also added King Prawns after the peppers and paste and been cooked through. Get everything prepared and ready to go and it's the easiest dish you'll ever make!

    Excellent recipe. Double the peas and (as others have said) add prawns for the last 5 minutes to make it really special.
