Paella a la Viviana's

With a Spanish mother I grew up with paella. Thank god for that. It still is my one of my favorite dishes. The original version is amazing and my mother could take half the day just cleaning and preparing the fish. After that making the paella is quite easy. The original paella doesn’t have to much vegetables so I’ve doubled the portions. Also four this quick version I bought the fish already cleaned so I can make the delicious paella in about 30 minutes.
I love this version hope you do to.

You can always wake me up for a good paella. You have different ones depending on the region in Spain but my favorite one is the one with fish. Ps normally I would also add mussels but unfortunately they weren’t available today.
