Paella is a traditional dish from Spain with Valencian roots. There are many different variations of paella but the original recipe calls for chicken, rabbit, snails, green beans, white beans, and artichokes. The modern recipe consists of saffron-scented rice, green beans or peas, chicken, chorizo, peppers, and some type of shellfish.

10 minutes of prep, lots of flavor and a complete healthy meal in one skillet! This simple Seafood Paella Recipe is the perfect weeknight meal (and goes great a glass of white wine).
