    Delicious and easy! The shrimp were a little overdone. Next time I will not use shrimp but instead sear scallops and add them at the end prior to covering with the foil.

    Turned out amazing. Except I think I purchase the incorrect chorizo. My chorizo was like leather. Will try again.

    I ended up having to bake it inside instead of on the grill. Turned out great! Baked it a little longer because I knew the oven wouldn’t get as hot.
    Delicious and quite easy to make!

    This was great! Halved the recipe because I didn't have a pan, and used the stove and oven instead of a grill; still turned out really well!

    After trying a half dozen paella recipes this is easily the best crowd pleaser. It's the most fun to make as well. I look forward to cooking this version of Paella
